Information and support for people living with sight loss

Story posted on

WILTSHIRESight is offering support and advice to people living with sight loss inMelksham.

Hosted at Melksham Library, the charity holds regular community teas, offering a chance for conversation, cake and support.

The next community tea will be held on Friday 14th February, 2pm to 4pm.

Community sight loss adviser, Alan Whetherly says, “We will have a guest speaker from the Macular Society talking to us about the disease. Age-related macular degeneration is the biggest cause of sight loss in the UK, so it will be interesting to get more information on this.”

The charity also hosts regular drop-in information sessions, giving people living with sight loss and the people around them, an opportunity to receive information and advice; discover new resources to help with daily living; and meet others with sight loss. The drop-in information sessions at Melksham Library are held on the second Tuesday of each month from 1-3pm.
