Inspired by the story of a young family from Bangor who raised funds to provide a safe play area and specialist equipment for their blind daughter, we are in the process of setting up a new charitable fund for children.
We aim to encourage parents, families and friends to take part in fundraising events, the proceeds of which will help meet the needs of children who have a visual impairment, by providing special needs grants and specialist equipment.
Many families with young children who have visual impairments will have experienced lengthy delays and numerous application forms when applying for essential equipment like a CCTV system or specialist computer software. We hope to be able to attract enough support to be able to help meet some of these needs.
Childhood and teenage years are the building blocks for the future. We hope that this new project will enable us to give children and young people with visual impairment the tools, opportunities and support they need, to become confident and independent adults
If you feel able to help support the fund in any way please contact Steven Thomas on 01248 353604.
