Come and help us at Tesco’s

We are raising funds at Tesco’s on Bentrim street/Prince William Road all day on Friday, 13th October. Some of us will be pedalling a static tandem, while others will be shaking buckets and telling the public all about Lisburn Outlook. This event is not only for our cyclists, as the money raised will go to our general funds. So please spare us a bit of your day: pedal if you wish, stand and smile if you prefer! If you can help out, please contact Paul Rodgers on 07889 749992.

 

Quiz Night – Have Fun & Raise Funds

Saturday 4th November: put it in your diary. Lisburn Outlook is organising a fund-raising quiz at the Racquets Club, 36 Belfast Road, Lisburn, starting at 7 for 7.30. There will be prizes! There will be light refreshments and a bar. Why not bring a team: your family, your church, your club, your workplace, bring them all (but if you are only one or two, we will make sure you get a team anyway.

Admission £10, including sandwiches and crisps. All profits go to Lisburn Outlook, and the emphasis will be on a good night out rather than on finding the next Mastermind.

 

 

 

Visual Awareness Training

As part of our support for Lisburn Outlook volunteers, we are offering some visual awareness training, courtesy of the South-Eastern health and Social Care Trust Sensory Impairment Team on Wednesday 27th September.

The training will cover topics such as:

–      Different types of vision loss;

–      Guiding techniques;

–      Etiquette;

–      Mobility aids;

–      Communications (how do we use phones, etc.)

We have in mind a session of up to 90 minutes and this would need to take place during working hours.

There are still some places available so if you are interested in attending please contact David Mann on 07766 302496 or e-mail lisburnoutlook@gmail.com with your availability.
