Five Points Brewery hosted a games night for brain injury charity Headway East London on Wednesday at the brewery’s pub The Pembury Tavern.

The event included several board games such as Articulate, Connect Four, Dominos, Scattergories, Chess, Risk, Scrabble, and many more.

There was also a Challenge Headway East London contest, in which brain injury survivors had the opportunity to play with Headway staff to win a free pint, and a raffle with prizes.

Pembury Tavern have said: “Supporting an incredible local cause run by lovely people and getting everyone involved is at the heart of what we wanted to do.”
