If LVDC is approached by a youngster with a disability that we are unable to help directly, we seek to find the relevant support. 2 such youngsters are Bertha and Edward who we have known very well for the last few years.
Bertha and Edward are both blind. Edward became blind aged 3 after contracting measles. Bertha became blind by the time she was 6 and in 2009 she sadly lost both of her parents within the same week – one through illness and the other in a road accident returning from the hospital.
Both Bertha and Edward are now studying to become teachers for the visually-impaired and blind, primary and nursery children.
Sue very kindly asked all her friends and family to join her in raising funds for Bertha and Edward as part of her 60th birthday celebrations. Thanks to everyone they raised over 600 GBP!
LVDC would like to say a huge thank you on behalf of Bertha and Edward, to Sue and all her friends and family who supported her.
And also, a very very Happy 60th Birthday Sue… we wish you all the very best!
