You probably won’t be aware but we were entered into the ‘You say, we pay’ Competition run by ASDA and Matrix Neurological were a chosen charity for the month of August along with two other well-known charities. During that month, customers and staff then vote for the charity they want to win.
Well you can imagine our surprise when Cath from Asda contacted us to say that we had gained the most votes and had won the competition!
On Friday 2 October we were presented with a cheque for £200 by the Store Manager to help support the work of the charity.
On behalf of everyone at Matrix Neurological – we have to say a massive THANK YOU to everyone who voted for us.
And a special Thank you to Cath from ASDA at Thornaby for all your hard work!

"Children and young people have poor social competence post brain injury due to reduced cognition, executive functions, and emotional control. As a result they are twice as likely to have mental health issues in the future"
"Our 10 year study proves that family-led home-based neuro-rehab interventions deliver the best outcomes for children and young people"
"There are problems with getting people into neuro-rehab. Those most in need are often those most excluded due to a lack of socio-economic resources."
