Spotlight on July, in our history

In July of 1942 and 1950, Brunelcare, then the ‘Old Peoples’ Welfare Committee’, opened their first residential homes in Bristol. Uganda House in Brislington in 1942, followed by Dulverton House in Clifton in 1950.

In 1964, Bernard Brooks - a Liason Officer for Voluntary Services - was appointed in July to help those being supported by Brunelcare and similar charities in Bristol (pictured here distributing coal to homes). A ‘first class organiser of extraordinary energy’ – just read what he accomplished in his first six months in the role!

And how about this for a day centre trip: in July 1985 a flight over Bristol in a Dakota plane!
