We had a full house for the dancing and also toured over 80 people around our 1930s listed Brighton building that is celebrating being 75 years old this year.
On Saturday 14 September we took part in English Heritage Open Days at our centre in Ovingdean, Brighton. Throughout the day staff gave tours to visitors who had come to hear more about the work we do and the people we help.
As part of the Heritage Open Day, a tea dance took place which went really well. We had a full house for the dancing and also toured over 80 people around our 1930s listed Brighton building that is celebrating being 75 years old this year.
Art and Craft manager Esther said: "We explained exactly what we do as a charity and raised awareness of the people who may be eligible for our services".
There are over 68,000 blind veterans in the UK who could be eligible for the free lifelong support from Blind Veterans UK. It doesn't matter to us when they served or for how long, nor how they lost their sight. If they did National Service or served in the Armed Forces and now suffer with sight problems please refer them to our website or freephone 0800 389 7979.
Esther Freeman said: "Some guests joined a tour then stayed all day joining in with the dancing and having cups of tea and delicious cakes.
"It was a brilliant day, thank you to Rag Roof Theatre and In Road Productions for putting it on."
Over the coming weeks we have some fantastic events planned for in and around the Brighton area, including a bowling night at the Bowlplex Brighton Marina and our Christmas carol concert is in planning! See what's on in Brighton this season.
