On Tuesday 27th October 2015, Charity Champion, Margaret Hampton, donned her walking shoes, to take on a 3 mile fundraising walk through Walsall Arboretum.

Margaret took part in the walk, in honour of her Mother and Father and to help raise money for Walsall Society for the Blind, a charity close to her heart.

Loving Daughter Margaret said her Father Sidney Pugh was a member of the Society and her Mother Edith was a volunteer, who served meals at the Society well into her 80’s.

Margaret contacted the Society and offered us a book of poems called ‘All Together’ for us to read out on our Talking News Service. The book was gratefully received by us and the poems were read out on our publications.

As a keen walker, Margaret has raised thousands of pounds for a host of different charities and wanted to raise funds for us in recognition of our interest in the book, which was the work of many members of the Walsall Ward of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints and as a thank you for the care given to her parents.

We would like to thank Margaret and her close friends and family for their donations, raising £225.00.

If you are interested in receiving our Walsall Talking Newspaper, which is packed with local news and items of interest or our Magazine publication containing the Peoples Friend and Reader’s Digest to name just a few, please do get in touch on 01922 – 627683, we will be happy to help.
