It’s not every day that a Cabinet Minister calls in when you move house, so four youngsters at SeeAbility’s newest service were delighted to welcome Epsom and Ewell MP Chris Grayling to their opening party on Friday 29 November.
The Epsom based charity, formerly The Royal School for the Blind, was celebrating opening its latest service in Ashtead. The charity supports people with sight loss and complex disabilities, providing each individual with the support they need to develop essential life skills and enrich their lives.
The Justice Secretary was invited to join the house warming party, to meet the people living there and to see for himself the property’s many specialist details which are a key to greater independence for those living there.
He said, “I very much enjoyed meeting everyone and being part of such a happy event. The thought which has gone into the house and level of detail makes this a very special place where people can get the most from life”.
SeeAbility Manager Terry Maguire said, “Everyone was very excited about Mr Graylings visit. The young people are all settling in very well and we are sure they will be very happy living here.”
