Thorneycroft Director Mark Belfield, who heads up the firm’s Catastrophic Injury team, has been rewarded for all his fundraising efforts by the charity Headway. 200 guests, including 60 children, were invited to a special advanced showing of the much awaited film “Shaun the sheep-the movie” at a Mayfair cinema on Saturday.
As an active runner, Mark has competed in a number of events over recent years supporting charities with sponsorship and has raised an am-a-a-a-a-zing £1000 for Headway.
One of the film directors of the Aardman production also works at Headway in London and so it was decided that it would be nice to reward the supporters who helped them raise £71,000 last year. Headway is credited at the end of the film as the plot in the story begins with one of the characters suffering a head injury and losing his memory.
Mark is particularly passionate about the importance of supporting charities that look after individuals and families who are suffering from the effects of life changing injuries. He feels they need all the help and support they can get when faced with the devastating consequences of a catastrophic injury.
We think Mark and his family thoroughly deserved their ‘ewe’nique experience in London!
