Sharma joins launch of new minibus for Reading Association for the Blind

Alok and Mayor Jenny Rynn at launch of RAB minibus with Allan Futter & RAB members & supporters On Tuesday 18th September 2012 Reading West MP Alok Sharma joined Reading Association for the Blind (RAB) for its Annual Open Day. On this occasion the Open Day included the launch of a new minibus by the Mayor of Reading, Councillor Jenny Rynn. RAB has been fundraising for some two years and has recently raised sufficient funds to purchase two new minibuses to help transport the Association’s visually impaired members to various clubs, which include a Handicrafts Club and Ramble Group, which offer activities and outings for members.

The Mayor of Reading, Councillor Jenny Rynn, said: “I was delighted to be invited to launch the new minibus for Reading Association for the Blind. I know the minibus will be an important tool in helping the Association carry out the brilliant work it does in Reading and I wish the volunteers continuing success in their work.”
