Seeability Day

9th November 2015

Please see below the article in the Dorset Echo regarding our recent Seeability Day:_

A young pupil organised a day of activities in support of SeeA-bility to show her peers how sight loss can affect everyday life.

Ten-year-old Isabella from Sticklands School in Evershot was inspired by her mum, Alice Moore, who is a marketing man-ager for private equity firm Rut-land Partners –  supporters of SeeAbility’s Children in Focus Campaign.

Isabella and her mum set up the fun activities for all pupils at Sticklands Primary School to take part in.

The children were given glasses that simulate different visibility conditions and degrees of sight loss and asked to perform every-day tasks like making squash, fill-ing a bag with sweets and copying from a chalkboard.

Anna Croghan, partnership

manager for SeeAbility, said: “Isa-bella is a fantastic young ambas-sador for the work that we do and is constantly coming up with ide-as to support SeeAbility. If not for Rutland’s partnership with See-

Ability Isabella may well never have heard of the charity. For this reason and many more, we really value our corporate partnerships as they help us to reach new audi-ences and strengthen support for our services.

“Today has been a great way for us to engage children at a grass roots level in a fun interactive en-vironment and to enable them to discover just how debilitating any form of sight loss can be.”
