SHARON Schaffer, CEO of Support4Sight, was the recent guest on RNIB Connect Radio’s Tracks Of My Life. This ‘Desert Island Discs’ type programme features personalities from the blind and partially sighted community. As the CEO of Support 4 Sight Sharon was delighted to be included in such a noteworthy line-up of previous guests.
Sharon said:” What a privilege be invited! And what a challenge to encapsulate life in 7 tracks! Thank you for the opportunity and for such a great time recording it”.
The programme went out on October 5th, and again on October 7th and 10th and is now available as a podcast at https://lnkd.in/ea5ZN_HC
Support4Sight provides support to people facing the challenges of living with sight loss. With a base in Saffron Walden, the charity provides services and opportunities to blind and partially sighted people across Uttlesford and surrounding areas.
” It has been a challenging 18 months for all of us, but I am relieved to say that our face-to-face activities are now re-open.
We were pleased to have so many people attend our coffee mornings as they reopened over the summer, and to resume our demonstrations of low vision aids for visually impaired people at Saffron Walden Town Hall and Broomfield Community Centre, as well as being able to bring these demonstrations into people’s homes as soon as our Home Visiting service was able to resume.
We are very grateful for the support we receive from Contamac in Saffron Walden, the local authorities across the region and the generous donations from our supporters.
These have been a lifeline over the past year. It is always good to do things to raise the profile of Support4Sight. I hope Tracks of My Life goes some way to doing this… and I hope some of the tracks resonate with you.”
