MATRIX Launch Event

October 8th, 2015

On Tuesday 6 October at The Middlesbrough Hotel, we officially launched our charity. The evening was very special to us and enabled us to share our vision and aims with friends and supporters who attended the event.

There was, unfortunately some glitches with technology and those attending were unable to view Callum’s personal message which was to be shown as the finale to our event.

In an attempt to rectify this we’ve uploaded the video onto our website and you can view it below.

Once again we thank all those attending for supporting us and we hope to continue working together to make lives better for children, young people and their families living with the effects of a brain injury.
