It is with huge sadness we report that Pamela Dennis, MBE, has passed away age 85 after a long battle with illness.  Pam worked for Gwent Association for the Blind from 1980 and was instrumental in growing the organisation from a lounge in someone’s house, to the thriving organisation it is now.  Pam started providing contracted rehabilitation roles so that people could adapt to their blindness, ran holidays for people with sight loss in Weston Super Mare and at Hilston Park, opened the first resource centre and helped the children’s group develop the capacity to help blind babies and children throughout Gwent.   She was awarded the MBE for her work in 2008 and will be remembered by many for the fantastic work she did.
