Berkshire Charity Posters Stolen

A sight charity in Berkshire tell Heart they have been left "perplexed" by the disappearances.

Berkshire Vision is a local independent sight charity - setup about 105 years ago.

They support around 2,000 blind and partially sighted people across the county but it's thought there are more than 7,000 visually impaired people in the area.

As part of their fundraising efforts they have organised a 70s Disco night but the posters have been disappearing.

Linda Maestranzi, Sports Development and Fundraising Officer for Berkshire Vision tells us "the first banner, we had a large banner we had a large banner that we placed on the large wall by our car parking area - that went missing after two weeks" .

Adding, "we thought at the time it had been blown away by the wind because they're had been very strong gales. We put another one up, secured it with plastic ties - made sure the wind wouldn't blow it away and yet it went missing again."

The A4 posters the charity had put up around Lower Earley were also taken down.

The council and local neighbourhood action groups say they haven't touched them.

On Saturday 7th May Berkshire Vision are holding a 70s Disco in The Meadow Suite at Park House in Reading - billed as "One big night of high energy disco calssics".
