A Room of One’s Own

The Pocklington Trust is a UK charity providing housing, care and support services for people with sight loss. Chris was surprised and delighted to learn that staff had voted to name a meeting room at their central London offices in his honour and went along to check out the space. Chris is a great admirer of the work of the charity and hopes that such a useful and flexible meeting space will be well used. Chris addressed the staff and expressed his honour that he was chosen saying “I’m just a working class kid from the Midlands so to have these kinds of things happen is extraordinary.”
