Action for Blind People’s ‘Mobile Services Unit’ takes to the road
RIGHT now there are around two million people in the UK who have significant sight loss.
The cause could be genetic, the result of an accident, an illness or injury, or simply because of the ageing process.
Support4Sight wants to highlight that help is available to local people with sight loss in west Essex.
On Tuesday (May 1), from 10am to 4pm, the national charity, Action for Blind People’s Mobile Services Unit will be in the Market Square, Saffron Walden.
If you would like to meet the Action for Blind People’s professional team and try out some of the latest technology on the bus, please come along to visit them. Staff and volunteers from Support 4 Sight will also be on hand to assist.
