Join us on Saturday 29th October 2022 for Jimbob’s Incredible Halloween Bike Ride – Exeter Quay to the Turf Locks and Back!


Meet Jimbob!

Jimbob is part of The Moving Tribe, a group of individuals experiencing communication difficulties after brain injury who come together on a Weds morning each week to benefit from creative art therapy at Headway Devon.

Jimbob is training hard to complete a wonderful charity bike ride to raise money to help provide more creative art therapy to help improve life after brain injury


Jimbob will tell you more:

“At 11.00am on Saturday the 29th of October 2022, I am starting my Incredible Bicycle Ride!

Get involved! Dress up for Halloween and cycle along with me, starting at Headway Devon at

the Quay, to the Turf Locks Hotel AND back again!

Or;  follow along on the boat from the Double Locks to the Turf Locks Hotel, giving me some serious encouragement.
I will be cycling 12.6 miles, which would take 54 minutes for a speedy cyclist [with no disability]

BUT! I am going to aim to complete that time as close as I possibly can! ⌚

Watch this space for updates – the first cycle today down at Exmouth sea front was a breeze….thanks for visiting my page. 👍🏼

My sister, Emma, speaks, writes and reads for me.
Thanks Emma! 😊🦸‍♀️”

Why is Creative Arts Therapy so Important? 

Art therapy is seen as one of the most effective therapeutic pathways for any individual experiencing difficulties with verbal communication, whether these difficulties are physical, psychological or cognitive. The majority of therapeutic pathways available are talking therapies, and these are ineffective for those that are unable to verbally express inner thoughts and emotions after brain injury.  Creative arts therapies can help individuals to explore thoughts and emotions that cannot be spoken and can be an incredibly powerful and non-threatening way to identify, process and express traumatic experiences and complex emotional states
