This month our Café & Co group will be taking place on Thursday 17th October at the Arora Café upstairs in Smyth Patterson’s in Bow Street from 10.30 to 12 noon. This is a great opportunity to get together for some refreshments and a chat so why not join us – you will be very welcome.
Our walking group has now stopped for the winter but we hope to resume in the spring.
Our walking group organiser, Katy Leach, has decided to take a break from walk organising next year so we will be looking for a volunteer to take this on in the spring. If you would be interested in this please contact David on 07766302496 or via email@example.com.
Our Thursday evening and Saturday morning tandem sessions have now stopped for the year. If you would be interested in taking part in this activity in the spring please contact Paul on 07889749992
Over the years RNIB have been working closely with the IFA at the National Stadium – Windsor Park, to improve accessibility at the Northern Ireland matches. As part of this work they offer a number of free seats for people with sight loss – together with a ‘carer’ – to attend a Northern Ireland match and experience audio description.
The idea is for you to ‘try before you buy’. If you go to a match and find that you enjoyed it then you can buy your own ticket for future games – your sighted guide goes free and you can still access the audio description.
If you have not been to a match since loosing your sight and you would like to try this – then please get in touch with Olive Rodgers. Olive will hold a list of everyone interested and work her way down when advised of tickets. If you are offered tickets but cannot go then you can stay on the list but you go to the bottom again.
You can only get free tickets once as you are expected to pay after this. If you are interested in this, please contact Olive Rodgers on 02890334133.
