Curtain Up

September 2017

RINGWOOD & Fordingbridge Club for the Blind welcomed a relatively new group to entertain members. Curtain Up Theatre Group of ten mature participants came striding into Greyfriars Activities Centre suitably attired in casual beach clothes. They then launched into rousing songs, mainly from the Beatles' era, that encouraged members to singalong or simply wave their arms in time with each melody.

The Group is run by Glen and Con Riley and based in Highcliffe. All their proceeds are donated to Dorset and Somerset Air Ambulance. Before the entertainment began, members also welcomed Janet Smith and her daughter who had, respectively, organised an afternoon tea at Wimborne St Giles and collected the princely sum of £500 which was donated to the Blind Club.

The next session of the Club, on 12th October, will feature the pianist Mark Busell.
