Stella and Ron Heath, founders of the Torch Trust.

Throughout 2009 Torch Fellowship Groups around the country have been celebrating "50 years of the Torch Trust", and on Saturday October 10th at 3PM, the Norwich Torch Fellowship Group would like you to join them at their local Thanksgiving Service and Fellowship Tea to be held at Douro Place Chapel, Douro Place, Norwich NR2 4BQ

Torch also supports over 120 affiliated fellowship groups like the Norwich one who meet on a regular basis for fellowship and support. Sighted supporters help the group with transport, visiting, catering and literature distribution and Norwich TFG would welcome new members and supporters from the Yarmouth area

Taking part in the worship will be the Torch Choir which is made up of visually impaired and sighted members of staff who work at Torch House at Market Harborough which houses the UK headquarters and production centre
