In this issue, read about blind veteran, Steve Sparkes’ amazing challenge to row 2,400 miles across the Pacific Ocean. Inside, you can also discover how your support helped Kelly Ganfield train for the 2018 Invictus Games. It is thanks to you, that Blind Veterans UK is able to provide lifelong support for ex-Service men and women like Steve and Kelly, who have given so much for our country.
In this Spring edition, you can read about what we have been doing to reach out to veterans in their communities, from setting up the first ‘Veteran’s Café’ to give local blind veterans a place to meet up and feel part of the local community, to our Transport Services that offer vital day trips to our centres and further afield for important training, rehabilitation and one-to-one support.
In this edition we lift the lid on how we’re building life skills at our Llandudno centre, introduce you to our new President Colin Williamson, and announce the winners from our recent ‘Founder’s Day’ awards.
In this edition we chat to our departing President Ray Hazan about his time at the charity, take a peek inside our Brighton centre and much more.
