Open Day

Our Open Day this year was held on Wednesday 4th September in our Resource Centre in Pontypool. We had lots of visitors getting up to date information on products and services available.

As usual we had representatives from technology companies giving advice about the latest products available. In particular there was a much interest in the software for phones and tablets provided by Synaptic. Their products specialise in making technology easy to use for visually impaired and blind people. Other technology companies attending were Dolphin and Optilec. Wiltshire Farm Foods were also on hand to give advice.

Claire Evans (a stalwart volunteer) made fabulous warm welsh cakes for visitors – delicious!! Thanks Claire you are a star!

Our annual raffle was drawn. Huge thanks to all who purchased tickets.

…………..and the winner was!!

Mrs Ann Workman – Ann is the wife of one of our volunteers Steve Workman – so the £300 prize went to a very worthy winner!!

Big thanks to all visitors, volunteers and staff who helped out on the day.
