A society for blind and partially sighted people hailed its first Christmas party held online as a “major success”.
Comic Jimmy Cricket and his wife, whose stage name is May Marion, headlined the Galloway’s show which was broadcast via Zoom.
Galloway’s posted on social media: “Our first virtual Christmas party on Zoom was a huge success.
“There was lots of laughter, with @jimmy__cricket and his wife May Marion, and our Assistive Tech Co-ordinator wowed everyone with his amazing voice.
“A huge thank you to everyone who joined us to make it special.”
Jimmy and May did a 30-minute set during the online celebration on Friday 18 December.

Guests could join using either their telephone, smart phone or tablet through the Zoom app.
The party is primarily aimed at blind and partially sighted people, their family members and the charity’s volunteers.
