Colin Parry OBE meets the WI

Home » Newsroom » Colin Parry OBE meets the WI

Lower Withington WI members, invited guests and visitors were filled with awe and admiration for our speaker, Colin Parry OBE, who shared his personal experience of the loss of his son, Tim, in the Warrington bombing.

Colin also told of his determination to ensure that out of the evil act of mindless terrorism which brought about Tim's death at the age of twelve and that of the infant Johnathan Ball should be created, in their memory, a long and lasting legacy of good.

As a result, and after much hard work on Colin's part, the Tim Parry and Johnathan Ball Peace Centre was established in Warrington to engender peace and understanding in young people of differing beliefs and experiences. The work of the centre continues to this day and professionals employed by the foundation are currently working in the area of the deradicalisation of young militants.

Our next meeting on the 26th November will be our AGM after which we shall be entertained by the Ringheye Morris Dancers.

Members are also reminded that we shall be having our usual Tombola Stall at the Lower Withington Christmas Fair on Saturday, December 6th and that donations of prizes would be very much appreciated.
