Charity celebrates 21st birthday
11:00am Wednesday 10th October 2012 in News
A PERSHORE charity marked 21 years working with people in the community with a celebratory lunch and tea party.
The Pershore Pathfinders, which is a club for partially sighted and blind people in the district, had the party at Holland House in Cropthorne and organisers said it was a great day.
The group, which has about 30 members aged up to 104, was started in 1992 by Beryl Marshall, a social worker who became aware that people losing their sight were in danger of becoming housebound.
She took two local people to visit the club in Evesham and from this, Pershore Pathfinders was born.
The group meets at the Civic Centre in Pershore between 9.30am and noon on the second and fourth Tuesday of each month.
Anyone interested in joining should call Barbara Price on 01386 550259.
