Sight-loss charity offers Rotherham advice sessions

Have your say

People affected by sight loss can find out about the latest visual aids when a mobile information service visits Rotherham.

The service, run by the Action for Blind People charity, will be in All Saints Square on Wednesday, September 3 from 10am to 4pm, offering specialist advice about gadgets to improve life, including ‘talking microwaves’ and vibrating bank note detectors.

Neal Atkinson, from the charity’s sight-loss information service, said: “Everybody is welcome to come along to visit us on the mobile.

“Whether you are visually impaired or know somebody who may be having problems with their sight, please pay us a visit and pick up information or ask us questions.”
