East Suffolk Association for the Blind – Awarded a grant of £1,000 towards monthly social events.

The visually impaired often find it difficult to go out in the wider community and the group try to make sure they have the support to attend a monthly social. They can become quite lonely and isolated. Most of the members are elderly and many also have restricted mobility. The group provides transport to enable them to get out of their homes and come to the socials. They very much enjoy themselves at the socials and the musical entertainment provided lifts spirits. The group are very fortunate to have ample volunteers to make sure members are safe and happy at the socials. Members often tell the volunteers how much they have enjoyed the afternoon and how they look forward to coming again.
