Reach member Mary Carr sadly passed away on Friday April 4th 2014 at Scotia Heights Nursing Home after a long illness. Mary was a Reach Member of Parliament for many years and helped people with learning disabilities to have a strong voice in Stoke-on-Trent. Mary's personality left a lasting impression on people and through her work with Reach helped to raise awareness about people's rights. We will miss Mary and will continue her work to make sure people with learning disabilities are valued, respected and heard. Our thoughts and best wishes are with Mary's family and friends at this difficult time.
