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.
Winners - 2019 Calendar & 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!

Kirsten Smith, CSR Manager at Digby Brown said: "“For many individuals who have suffered a brain injury, the activities and social contact they get from their local group is a life-line with art often playing its part as a therapeutic activity. “We are proud to co-ordinate an event that encourages those with brain injuries to express themselves through art and celebrate their incredible talents.”
