A celebration of our veterans

Over 100 years ago, Sir Arthur Pearson, the Founder of Blind Veterans UK, secured our first home, St Dunstan’s Lodge in Regents Park and we moved there at the end of March 1915 - for decades our beneficiaries were known as St Dunstaners.

The charity was founded on Sir Arthur’s principles and his belief that sight loss should not prevent anyone from leading the life they choose.

At Blind Veterans UK we have always supported and celebrated the principles of Sir Arthur, and have taken the opportunity to recognise the achievements of blind veterans at this time of year.

This year, we are celebrating the spirit of so many of our veterans and the way they have overcome the challenges of the pandemic.
