Peterborough Association for the Blind (PAB) and No Gain No Pain UK (NGNPUK) have been working in partnership to produce syringe bags for the members of NGNPUK.
The PAB’s visually impaired craft club meet once a month and decided to put their crafty skills to good use for the benefit of another charity. NGNPUK are a charity dedicated to providing syringe drivers to people who are in continuous pain during their end of life care. Just one syringe driver costs almost £1100.00. NGNPUK’s objective is to fundraise and provide immediate access to these much needed machines. There is a continual need for syringe bags so the PAB craft group were only too happy to help. Louise from NGNPUK came along to the group to meet some of our visually impaired and blind members so they could learn more about how the bags they were making were being used.
Activities Coordinator from PAB Nina Lutterer commented:
‘It is a delight to be able to work with NGNPUK. Members from both charities have benefited from this and we are only too happy to help. We run various activities for people with a wide range of visual impairments and if we can help other charities at the same time then that is just fantastic for everyone involved’
