Commemoration – Founder of Arthritis Care

Commemoration – Founder of Arthritis Care

A.C.M. Bowen 1933 – 1980

The founder of Arthritis Care, soon to be amalgamated with Arthritis Research, was born and brought up in Pontyberem.  A life-long sufferer from arthritis, he made it his life’s work to ensure that people with the illness could lead able and fulfilling lives.

A small panel commemorating his achievements will be unveiled in the Pontyberem Memorial Hall.  Bowen’s widow, Helen who has sponsored the panel, will be travelling from Torquay to unveil it.

The ceremony will take place at 11 am on Thursday, 16th August.  Light refreshments from 10.30 am.

Refreshments are being arranged by one of Age Cymru Sir Gar’s board members who is also helping to organise the event.
