“I lost my sight over a long period of time and I am now registered blind. I looked at what was on offer at Henshaws and realised that I would have the opportunity to do things I thought may now be out of my reach. I decided to join a creative writing group. I have always fancied writing and wanted to try my hand at poetry, short stories and maybe even script writing. I have written a couple of poems and they were read out at the poetry group, I never imagined this was something that I could achieve.
I don’t feel as if i have even scratched the surface with Henshaws, this organisation has given me the confidence and the opportunity to get on with my life in spite of my sight loss.”
