Autumn 2019


David Naylor, Building Better Opportunities (BBO) Project Participant to appear at #Watfringe fest!

This month, the team at Hertfordshire Adult & Family Learning Service (HAFLS) were delighted to see one of our Building Better Opportunities participants, David Naylor, make the local news.

David Naylor was one of the many inspirational participants at this year's Building Better Opportunities (BBO) celebration event, sharing his story of how our project helped him, following a severe brain injury in 2017 which left him in a coma for 3 weeks. David had nothing but praise for  the project, stating; ‘I was a little lost a year ago but thanks to my friends at BBO, I now know why I moved to Stevenage’.

A talented songwriter, David has since been able to use his love of music as a focus for his recovery and on Saturday 12th October, he  is appearing at Watford Museum as part of #Watfringe to talk about his journey and perform his music. David will be  donating a percentage of profits to the Headway charity in London in recognition of the support he received from the charity. His inspirational story was featured  in the local newspaper, the Comet 24,  helping to spread the word about the fantastic work that the Building Better Opportunities project does across Hertfordshire.
