Over £200k to change lives in Wisbech

£210,000 will help fund more help for those in need in Wisbech.

The money for Cam Sight means they can expand their Low Vision and Blindness Centre in the town.

The charity says it will let them give more support and advice for those who are losing or who have lost their sight.

The funding means they can carry on the work being done at the centre in Fenland.

But it will also let them start three new ones as two qualified counsellors will be brought in to help those going through sight loss.

They will also run group support sessions in the area and provide people with the chance of one-to-one support at their homes.

Technology group training session will be made available too with those with low vision or dealing with blindness.

Dawn Preston, Fenland Support Manager, Cam Sight said:

"We deliver quality services but the Fenland team has been under-resourced, which has led to an unequal distribution of services across the county.

"We are thrilled to receive the funding which will address this issue and also enable us to provide a more holistic service to people living with low vision and blindness in Fenland."

The money is from the Big Lottery Fund.
