Welwyn Garden City disability charity features on BBC
A CHARITY based in WGC was at the centre of national TV news bulletins.
Live broadcasts from HAD went out on BBC News 24 as part of the channel’s week-long coverage marking the 40th anniversary of the formation of the Disability Act, and also World Disability Day, on December 3.
General admin assistant Julie Ritchie and volunteer Brett Waterman were both interview by BBC news correspondent Nick Higham, at the charity’s Woodside Centre base.
They explained the importance of organisations like HAD, with Brett, who has cerebral palsy, highlighting how the charity had, not only given him a job, but “a purpose in life too”.
The broadcast also included a look at how technology is used to help disabled people and a piece on one of HAD’s partners, Herts Society for the Blind.
