Classic Ibiza is delighted to announce that it has partnered with Wiltshire Sight, a local charity based in Devizes.
Wiltshire Sight is a registered charity that works with visually impaired people and their families to ensure that people living with a visual impairment across the county can lead active and fulfilled lives.
Across Wiltshire and Swindon, an estimated 24,000 people are currently living with sight loss. Current figures from the RNIB suggest that by 2030, 1 in 25 people living in Wiltshire will have sight loss.
Sight loss can have devastating consequences. It can restrict social interaction, cause isolation, remove a person’s independence and lead to low self-esteem, lack of self-confidence or depression. Wiltshire Sight exists to ensure that individuals with visual impairments are fully supported in living their lives independently and to the full. Whether they work with someone who has been blind since birth or someone who is only now dealing with the onset of a visual impairment, they offer a range of services that are appropriate to the specific needs of the individual, including advice and guidance, technology support and training, social activities and support for those living with a visual impairment.
Wiltshire Sight also provide training and awareness to help communities, service organisations and the general public across Wiltshire and Swindon to better understand sight loss prevention, and remove barriers and address inequalities for people living with sight loss.
With your help through various fundraising activities at Classic Ibiza Bowood, including a donation of £1 from every programme sold on the evening and collection points at the onsite retailers and exit points, the money raised will go towards helping those who are visually impaired.
