Henshaws 1976 fundraiser (video)
This is a fundraising appeal video made by our charity back in 1976, which provides an interesting overview of our services back in the 1970’s.
These included supporting living accommodation in both Rhyl and Southport, as well as the Belmont Hotel in Llandudno and the new specialist college and housing provision in Harrogate. Apologies for the use of the out-dated term ‘visually handicapped’ which is used in the video; this is not a phrase that our charity (or indeed wider society) uses any more.
Please be advised that the address that is included in the video is no longer the location of our charity’s headquarters (although we’ve only moved just down the road to Stretford, Greater Manchester).
