Hanging out at Halstead House

In our last archive post we wrote about a very generous gift made to RLSB in 1952 but Mr Harry Halstead, who left a house in his will.

This gift enabled RLSB to set up a residential home called Halstead House for blind men.

Today we feature two photographs of the young men, who were workers in RLSB’s employment workshops, enjoying their new home. The first photograph shows the young men chilling out on sofas while others gather around a piano, and the others show the young men playing a game of cards.

RLSB would like to take this opportunity to remember and thank all its long term supporters and those who leave gifts in their wills. It is an invaluable way of ensuring we can work in the best way for the blind and partially sighted young people that we are here to serve.
