Glorious sunshine meant the weather matched the theme for the annual heritage day organised by the Brothers Of Charity Services.

Each year the event celebrates the organisation’s heritage and focuses on a theme considered to be fundamental to the vision of their founder Canon Peter Joseph Triest.

The theme of Sunday’s event at Lisieux Hall, in Whittle-le-Woods, was “Each act of care is a ray of sunshine”, so organisers were happy to see the sun was shining.

Hundreds of visitors attended the garden party, which was opened by the Mayor of Chorley, Coun Marion Lowe, and her consort Coun Adrian Lowe.

They enjoyed games, live music, food, dancing and drama presentations.

Brothers Of Charity Services has been working in Lancashire for more than 80 years and provides a range of services for people with learning disabilities.
