Our beneficiaries have told us that they want us to raise awareness of the impact of sight loss in North Staffordshire with the aim of helping to make it a more inclusive and accessible place to live.

Last year we held an Awareness Day for that purpose at Burslem Park, at the event we raised a lot of awareness with activities using our Simulation Glasses, our cane awareness section, our sight loss Scavenger Hunt plus much more.  There were also lots of family activities such as a bouncy castle, face painting, craft tent, hoola hooping, a Disney Princess and the wonderful Endon Storm Troopers. The event was supported by Port Vale and Staffordshire Fire and Rescue.

We are planning to hold a similar event this summer and will post updates on our website and social media pages.

In addition to this we try to attend lots of other events across North Staffordshire with our awareness raising activities and equipment, for example local Spring Fayres, Stoke-on-Trent Pride and Longton Carnival and Pig Walk.
