It is with great sadness that we have to inform you about the passing of Barbara Howieson this week. Barbara played a key role in forming the Blackburn with Darwen branch of Headway. She was an active member of the group in the 10 years since it began, as a volunteer, chairperson, steering group member and fundraiser.
Barbara worked tirelessly to raise awareness of brain injury and the impact it can have. She was always generous with her time; her warmth, and humour will be missed by everyone at the group. Barbara’s Funeral is on Tuesday 13th May at Blackburn Crematorium at 2.15pm.
She has requested donations be made to Headway Blackburn instead of flowers.
