                  “Before I heard of Sight Support West of England, I didn’t know of any visually-impaired activities in my local area.  I’ve taken part in a ‘Have a Go’ sports day, an archery taster day and two social groups.

                  Sight Support West of England has opened up a whole new social scene for me and now I feel totally connected!”
