On Thursday 19th April Somerset Sight ran our first wine tasting evening for over 40 people at Majestic Wines in Taunton. Over £400 was raised for our services and activities.
Guests had a chance to try wine from various regions and take part in blindfolded challenges, experiencing what it may be like to be visually impaired.
We also launched our centenary brick appeal to raise money to improve our premises on Staplegrove Road.
Holly Sutton, Fundraising and Development Officer says; ‘It was a fantastic evening, we are absolutely thrilled that so many new people came. Fundraising is vitally important to us. All money raised goes directly to helping visually impaired people and their families in Somerset.’
The team at Somerset Sight are planning more events including an evening of Music and Magic in August. If you are interested in attending future events, or contributing to the brick appeal, please contact Holly on 01823 366147 or email her.
