Summer Appeal 2018

There are many everyday tasks that most of us take for granted. Reading a newspaper, doing your shopping or even simply expressing your feelings are all things that most of us do without thinking, but imagine trying to complete these tasks if you were losing your sight, or living with a disability. Your gift this summer could ensure people living with sight loss or other disabilities can regain their independence and grow their confidence.
