A ROADSHOW aimed at helping people suffering with sight loss dropped into Daventry this week.

Northamptonshire Association for the Blind’s (NAB) mobile sight centre was in town on Wednesday to hand out advice.

Regular stops are scheduled at town centres, schools, supermarkets, medical centres, retirement villages and libraries.

NAB’s specially adjusted vehicle is fitted out to display a wide range of everyday living aids and gadgets specifically designed to help make life a little easier for visually impaired people.

Marketing manager Stefanie Weldon said: “Our vehicle delivers a free sight loss information service to local communities.

“On board you will meet the charity’s friendly Information Officer, Fred Cannon, who is able to offer specialist advice, support and information on a wide range of topics relating to sight loss.

“All manner of devices can assist you in normal everyday living such as talking clocks and watches, reading and writing aids and big button telephones.”

To find out when the sight centre will be near you or for more information, contact NAB’s helpline on 01604 719193 or visit www.nab.org.uk
