I’m championing sight issues
5:30pm Wednesday 20th June 2012 in Worcester
MAYOR of Droitwich, Councillor Anne Taft has announced Sight Concern Worcestershire as one of her charities for the year.
During her time in office, the mayor will lend her support to Sight Concern Worcestershire which helps blind and partially-sighted people across the county and also the Friends of Droitwich Lido.
To mark the start of her support of Sight Concern, Coun Taft attended a Diamond Jubilee-themed tea party. Held at Sight Concern Worcestershire’s Bradbury Centre in Sansome Walk, Worcester, the party was also attended by 65 blind and partially- sighted people from across the county and Robin Walker MP. Councillor Taft said: “Sight Concern Worcestershire is one of the oldest charities serving this county. The work it does is invaluable, helping people with sight loss learn to do things differently, such as preparing a meal from scratch or using talking computers. “The charity does so much, yet still not everyone who needs their help is aware of the support services they can access from Sight Concern. I want to do all I can during my year in office to tell everyone about the work of Sight Concern. The tea party gave me the ideal opportunity to meet people who use the charity and to find out more about what services are on offer.”
