Ro­tary Round-up

News from the clubs in the area

Midweek Visiter - - Rotary Round-up -

RES­I­DENTS of The Spinal Unit Ac­tion Group (SUAG) on Weld Rd, South­port, were treated to a visit to The World of Glass in St He­lens by the Ro­tary Club of South­port Links.

SUAG was es­tab­lished in 1973 to sup­port the pa­tients and ex-pa­tients of the North West Re­gional Spinal In­juries Cen­tre in South­port.

They pro­vide and main­tain a long and short-term res­i­den­tial home at 6 Weld Road, South­port and run var­i­ous so­cial events for pa­tients and their vis­i­tors at the spinal in­jury cen­tre on a monthly ba­sis.

The guests en­joyed their visit to this in­for­ma­tive venue, on the site of Pilk­ing­ton’s glass­works, and are pic­tured just be­fore en­ter­ing the fur­nace to see the start of the glass mak­ing process, with their two nurses and mem­bers of the Ro­tary Club.

South­port Links Ro­tary have a long as­so­ci­a­tion with SUAG, help­ing them build raised beds to help with their gar­den­ing and sup­ply­ing a new TV for their lounge, in ad­di­tion to days out such as this.
