Branch makes £200 do­na­tion to char­ity

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Your News -

Nor­wich & Peter­bor­ough Build­ing So­ci­ety’s Wer­ring­ton branch pre­sented a £200 cheque to Fa­cial Palsy UK as part of the Char­ity Choices Cam­paign sup­ported by York­shire Build­ing So­ci­ety Char­i­ta­ble Foun­da­tion, of which Nor­wich and Peter­bor­ough Build­ing So­ci­ety is part.

“Fa­cial paral­y­sis af­fects chil­dren and adults. There are many causes in­clud­ing in­fec­tion, in­jury, can­cer and neu­ro­log­i­cal prob­lems,” said the char­ity’s Lor­raine Thurston. “Peo­ple of­ten tell me that the thing they miss most is their smile. Weall rely on fa­cial sig­nals when we com­mu­ni­cate. If some­one is un­able to smile they are seen as un­friendly or un­car­ing.”
