Call for stories from Blind Veterans UK beneficiaries, staff, volunteers and supporters for centenary project

1 July 2014 14:59

In preparation for our centenary celebrations next year, we are calling for anyone who has been associated with Blind Veterans UK to share their experiences.

We are requesting people to share stories, memories, experiences and anecdotes as part of our '100 Years, 100 Voices' project. This is with the aim of recording 100 oral histories that tell the story of Blind Veterans UK from our inception in 1915, through the early days as St Dunstan's, to the present day.  A selection of the stories submitted will be chosen to become recorded oral histories.

Rob Baker, Information and Archives Officer at Blind Veterans UK, said, "Blind Veterans UK has touched and transformed the lives of so many people during our 100 year history. To celebrate our centenary and tell the history of our charity, we'd like to capture some of the special moments, recollections and anecdotes from those who have been a part of our organisation, in one way or another. We'd also like to hear from any staff, volunteers or supporters who've enabled us to help so many blind veterans, as well as from carers."

Anyone interested in taking part, should contact Rob Baker, Information and Archives Officer at Blind Veterans UK, by email on or call 020 7723 5021. All stories should be submitted by 31 August 2014.
