Dacorum Mencap celebrates 70 years of supporting adults with learning disabilities

The charity’s members, staff and families came together for its own Platinum Jubilee.

A charity which supports people with learning disabilities in Hemel Hempstead, Tring and Berkhamsted has celebrated 70 years of serving the community with a party.

Dacorum Mencap, which is affiliated with Royal Mencap, was founded in 1952 and runs activities like going to nightclubs, games evenings and days outs for local adults.

The group, which has around 70 members who live in the borough, joined last Thursday (July 28) for a celebration party at The Steam Coach in Hemel Hempstead.

The charity held a party last week.
