The Hanbury Children’s Home located in Kendal, Manchester will celebrate its 50th anniversary in October, and a week of activities are being planned to mark the milestone.
Carlisle Welsh, events organiser, told JIS News that activities get underway on Sunday, October 22, with a service at St. Mark’s Anglican Church beginning 10:00 a.m.
Activities continue on Wednesday (Oct. 25) with a “grand open day at the home from which we are expecting to do a live broadcast and then the main event for the week will be on Sunday (Oct. 29) when we will be staging a fundraising banquet and awards ceremony at the Kendal Conference Centre starting at 2:30 p.m.”
Mr. Welsh encouraged residents of the parish to come put and participate in the anniversary celebrations. He said that the home, which was operated by the Salvation Army, “has done a lot for so many of our youngsters over the past half Century; we need your support”.
