Once again back to the Pavilion in Birkenhead Park. This time it was for World Sight Day, and we were there mainly to raise the awareness of the charity. Among those there were The Wirral Society of the Blind and Partially Sighted, The Liaison Officer from The Eye Clinic, Arrowe Park Hospital and his assistant, the RNIB, and various commercial firms with their goods for sale. This was not a day for selling but it was very interesting meeting all the different people involved with helping those with vision problems.
The Eye Fund is having an art exhibition of some of Simon’s graphics. Professional artists will be contributing some of their own impressions of Simon’s designs. Local schoolchildren have been working hard making their own copies of the same pictures.

We will also be presenting a cheque of £4500 to the Wirral Society for the Blind and Partially sighted to help pay for a counsellor to advise people faced with losing their sight.
