Adult Learning course co-ordinator presented with award for work with brain injury group

Buckinghamshire Adult Learning course co-ordinator Carol Haines has been given an award for helping a brain injury group.

Carol, 62, from Wing, started a digital photography group for adults with brain injury at the Camborne Centre in Aylesbury five years ago.

She has now retired but was honoured last month with the award. It was presented to her by Malcolm Underhill from IBB Solicitors, the award sponsors, while Dr. Andy Tyerman, Consultant Clinical Neuropsychologist, Community Head Injury Service, thanked her for her work. He said: “This award is well deserved recognition for Carol’s commitment and passion for helping adults with brain injury to achieve to their full potential.”

A local charity, Enrych Buckinghamshire, is now continuing Carol’s work and running digital photography sessions.

Carol said: “I have thoroughly enjoyed working with the Camborne Centre and the photography group. It has been a pleasure to work alongside the gentlemen who have taken some great photographs and have a keen sense of fun. I wish them much luck in the future as they continue to work with Enrych.”

Zahir Mohammed, Buckinghamshire County Council Cabinet Member for Education & Skills, said: “I am delighted that Carol’s vitally-important work has been recognised in this way and wish her the very best in her retirement.”

The Foundation Learning team at Buckinghamshire Adult Learning continues to develop courses for adults with learning difficulties or disabilities.
