Somerset Sight has recently organised a trip to Hollywood Bowl for 17 visually impaired children and their families. The group which ranged in age from 5 to 16 enjoyed an hours bowling and had lunch together.
Sarah Haydock from Bridgwater who came along with her son Fred said ‘it was a wonderful day- great for Fred to have an opportunity to try something new and for me to meet other parents.’
Thanks to a grant from BBC Children in Need we are now offering regular events and outings to families with blind and partially sighted children. If you have a visually impaired child please do contact us.
We would like to recruit more volunteers to support these activities and for other roles, including visiting people in their homes, fundraising and more. For more information please contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org or 01823 333818.
