Low Vision Day 2018 was a huge success drawing in crowds from all over the area. Held at Deaflbind UK, the Deputy Mayor and Deputy Mayoress opened the event which featured stall holders from local businesses, local agencies and local charities. There were hands on demonstrations of products as well as a Guide Dogs display and Yoga and Archery tasters.
Peterborough Association for the Blind are very grateful to our Volunteers for helping on the day including the team from AB Agri at Lynch Wood, Peterborough. AB Agri were keen to offer volunteering opportunities to their staff and contacted PAB earlier this year. Their staff attended our dedicated training session to learn more about living with sight loss and how to guide safely. On the day they were able to greet, guide and support those with a visual impairment around the venue which was an integral part of day.
The shuttlebus ran smoothly from Queensgate Bus Station directly to the venue meaning that people were greeted at the entrance, with a guide if necessary. Overall a brilliant day was had by all and we received lots of comments about how beneficial the event was for them.
Here are just a few pictures from the day.
