The Sense charity shop in Aldridge is hosting a coffee morning on Thursday 27 August from 10:30am to raise vital funds for children who are both deaf and blind. Have a cup of tea and a slice of cake, enter a raffle to win great prizes and find out more about the work the charity does around the world.

All proceeds from the event will go towards Sense International’s Finding Grace campaign, which aims to raise money for a pioneering programme to screen 300,000 infants in East Africa for deafblindness – for the very first time.

The Sense shop first opened its doors six months ago and received a warm welcome from the local community. To mark the opening former Walsall Mayor, Councillor Pete Smith, cut the ribbon to the sound of the Aldridge School Junior Swing Band performing live.

Sacha Shaw, Sense shop manager, said:

“Pop by our shop to have your morning cuppa and enjoy delicious treats while browsing for bargains and hidden gems. Even the smallest donation can help us ensure that deafblind children in developing countries are identified and supported to live active and full lives.”

The Finding Grace coffee morning takes place on Thursday 27 August from 10:30am at the Sense shop on 4 Croft Parade, Aldridge, West Midlands, WS9 8LY.
