Celebration is in the air on June 12th when Vision North Somerset launch a fantastic new project funded by the National Lottery.

People with sight loss, their family and carers are invited to come along to the charity’s centre in Neva Road to see what’s on offer.

The In Sight in Touch project received an amazing £336,000 from the National Lottery and will introduce some innovative ideas put forward by blind and partially sighted people themselves.

The Celebration and Open Day is an opportunity for everyone to come along, find out what we have planned and tell us their own ideas too.

Other exhibitors will also be present for the event including HumanWare assistive technology, Dolphin Computers, Wiltshire Farm Foods and others.

The charity is also celebrating volunteers week and has invited all of the organisation’s 80 volunteers to share in the celebrations. Voluntary Services Co-ordinator Michele Blake said: “Our volunteers are a great team and highly valued. If anyone would like to consider joining us we’d be happy to see them at the Open Day and have a chat about volunteering opportunities.”

The event takes place from 11am – 3pm on 12th June at Vision North Somerset, 3 Neva Road, Weston super Mare.
