Stewart Jackson MP made a visit today to the inspirational Peterborough charity Shine in their 50th anniversary year.
Shine provides specialist support from before birth and throughout the life of anyone living with spina bifida and/or hydrocephalus, as well as to parents, families, carers and professional care staff. Shine enables people to get the best out of life.
As of the 20th October 2011, Spina bifida • Hydrocephalus • Information • Networking • Equality – Shine, became the new name for the Association for Spina Bifida and Hydrocephalus (ASBAH). Shine is a registered charity, which was formed in 1966, initially to help families and individuals affected by spina bifida and hydrocephalus.
Today, Shine is a community of 75,000 individuals, families, friends, and professionals, sharing achievements, challenges and information on living with hydrocephalus, or spina bifida, and related issues. Working together throughout England, Wales and Northern Ireland, they strive to overcome challenges and achieve the best for you and your family.
It is a marvelous charity and Stewart was honoured to be invited to help celebrate it’s 50th Anniversary.
Stewart welcomed the opportunity to meet staff and talk with Chief Executive Kate Steele about how he can support their work going forward.
