Education and outreach is a vital part of the work of Fighting Blindness. We are committed to providing information and support to people and families all over Ireland who are living with sight loss. We also promote healthy living for eye health and encourage the general public to lead a healthy lifestyle and get regular eye tests, this is especially important for people over the age of 50 and people who have diabetes. We are currently planning a number of education and outreach events for 2016. If you would like us to visit your local area please get in touch with Caitriona on 01 6789 004 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Donegal Information Evening
On Thursday evening, July 16, Fighting Blindness hosted an information event in Letterkenny. We are very grateful to local eye doctors in the area who invited us to speak and to the NCBI in Donegal for helping to promote the event.
RNIB NI Derry Information Meeting
We were delighted to have the opportunity to speak to members of RNIB Northern Ireland as part of an event in Derry on Friday, July 17.
Thank you to everyone who attended both of these events. It was great to meet so many wonderful people and we hope that the information you received was useful to you.
