Andover VIPs (Visually Impaired Persons)is now affiliated to the national charity the Macular Disease Society, which has its Headquarters in Andover.
The two organisations jointly hosted a 'Tea for MD' fundraising event at St Ann's Hall, Suffolk Road, Andover for members and guests. The Mayor of Test Valley, Cllr Dorothy Baverstock cut the cake, and Sir George drew the raffle
The date is the 25th Anniversary of MDS, with Andover VIPs 20th Anniversary later in the year, so there was much to celebrate.
Guests at the tea were told of the services which the MDS provided, including the helpline, and of the resources that were going ito research to find a cure for age-related macular degeneration.
