Burton Latimer Blind Committee - 1967

The Burton Latimer Committee for the Blind was a group of club members from all the Working Mens' Clubs in Burton Latimer. It raised funds for the relief of blind and partially-sighted townspeople through social events and collections. Much of its income was raised at the time of the town's annual gala parade. The photograph above was taken in the garden of the Conservative Club in 1967.
