Sunny Welcome from Club with Roots in the Caribbean; Community Awards


Byline: BARBARA GOULDEN

PENSIONERS Vera Harris and Ella Grant do everything from needlework to computer training at their Warwickshire day centre.

Both women are members of the West Indian Association which welcomes more than 30 people to twice-weekly sessions in St Peter's Road, Rugby.

Vera, aged 69, said: "Most of us have African-Caribbean roots but this centre is open to every pensioner in the Rugby area who wants to join us and try out some lovely Caribbean lunches."

Right now Vera, Ella and their friends are "road-testing" one of five new armchairs bought by the Evening Telegraph with pounds 1,000 left over from the organisation costs of last year's Pride of Coventry and Warwickshire Community Awards. But the group have also got their thinking caps on trying to come up with more nominations in the Caring Hero, Public Sector Hero and Young Community Hero categories.

Vera said: "Our old chairs are too low for people with back problems and arthritis and so getting some new ones will be lovely.

"I've been coming here ever since the club started and I've learned to e-mail my daughter Pamela in America and my relatives back in Jamaica."

Ella, aged 91, said: "I don't bother with the computer too much because I prefer to do crochet work and chat to my friends."

THERE are now only two days left to nominate Coventry and Warwickshire people in our present three categories of Young Hero, Caring Hero and Public Sector Hero.

Winners in each category will receive pounds 250 for a charity of their choice and one overall winner will receive pounds 1,500 for a good cause.
