Cambodia Trip

John Gardner is doing a trek in Cambodia in November 2016 to raise money for Headway Hertfordshire. He has run his own business for over 25 years now and throughout that time he has tried to support, where he can, a variety of needy causes from local young people’s sports teams , Community Groups and other Local Charities. He believes we should all try to give something back for the betterment of others where we can.

John came to Charity trekking quite late on (much to his regret) and he has so far walked up and down the Great Wall of China and the mountains of North Vietnam.Outside of work he has a number of interests which include travel, walking, dining out, theatre, cinema, concerts, watching Sports, fishing, poker and cooking.He is a massive Star Wars fan and Facebook addict. He doesn’t have a mobile phone and isn’t a fan of Technology which he believe dehumanises us.

The Big Gig

Tremendous thanks to the Light Alloys, in particular to guitarist Mick, for putting on an amazing fundraiser for Headway Herts on Friday 6 May.  Great fun was had by young (including very very young) and old. The band was excellent, the food was enjoyed. And best of all the evening raised around £2000 for Headway Hertfordshire. A huge round of applause to all who contributed.


A massive congratulations to Lucy Thurlow for completing her 2.6 mile sponsored walk for Headway Hertfordshire raising over £2,000.00 – such an inspiration to us all.
