History Book launched to mark Barnet Mencap's 50th Anniversary

The recent AGM saw the launch of a book to mark Barnet Mencap's 50th anniversary.

historybookTitled 'From Backward Children to Bright Futures: The Story of the First Fifty Years of Barnet Mencap', the book has been written by our Treasurer, Mike Wiffen. It charts the first fifty years of our history, with a foreword from both our Chairman, Peter Carter, and Royal Mencap's Chief Executive, Jan Tregelles (who also spoke at our AGM).

Thanks to hours of research and interviewing many of those who have been involved throughout the years, the book is a comprehensive guide to our first fifty years, whilst also looking at the history of learning disabilities. It also features lots of photographs from our history.

The book is available to buy from our office for £6. Please contact Project Support on 020 8349 3842 or email projectsupport@barnetmencap.org.uk if you'd like a copy or more information.
