Winners announced for 2019 Calendar Competition

People living with a brain injury were again asked by Digby Brown Solicitors to submit a piece of creative work to be used in our 2019 calendar. A separate piece was also chosen for our 2018 Christmas card.

We received over 150 entries this year from 20 brain injury groups across Scotland making judging very difficult - so many great entries!

The winners each received a £50 gift voucher and their local support group received a cheque for £200.
