Heads Up

Richard Hammond

Richard HammondTop Gear star Richard Hammond is backing a book launch in a bid to help youngsters better understand brain injuries and their hidden effects. The BBC presenter suffered a serious brain injury himself when he was involved in a high speed car crash.
Brain injury has also featured heavily in the news agenda after retired Formula One driver Michael Schumacher was involved in a skiing accident in recent weeks.
Richard said he is proud to lend his support to the publications, which are now available to order and he has also made an exclusive audio-book to accompany one of the books.
Talking about the creation of the publications, which includes a parents’ handbook and two children’s books, he said: “This is a wonderful, colourful way for families touched by brain injury to explore the issues they may face.”
The children’s books are aimed at different age groups and are designed to empower children and help them in their rehabilitation journey. Heads Up, Tim-Tron explains acquired brain injury to young readers of primary school age, through the story of a mischievous little robot, who bumps his head whilst playing.
Because of his bump, one of Tim-Tron’s circuit boards stops working and he has to discover new routines and ways of doing things in life.
