Putting 110 Years on the Map

The map was unveiled by Mr Keith Hardwick Trott, Chairman of the charity. Also in attendance was Keighley Town Mayor and Patron, Councillor Shabir Ahmed and Mr Robert Templar, Trustee of The Craven Trust who were one of the grant providers towards the cost of the map.

Grants were also received from Persimmon Homes West Yorkshire, Santander Foundation and Sovereign Healthcare Charitable Trust which covered the £5,000 cost of the project.

The Lena Anderton Meeting Room, in which the map is located, is used by twenty local organisations for group meetings totalling 2,500 visitors per year. Many of these visitors are unaware of the services that the charity provides. The map encourages visitors to touch and interact, providing a unique way of promoting the Sight Centre services that would not be possible with a simple printed leaflet or poster.

Our living with sight loss courses gives people the opportunity to meet and chat with other people living with sight loss in a relaxed, informal environment. Our volunteer speakers, who are people living with sight loss, tell their stories and answer questions.

To mark our 110th Anniversary a new tactile map was unveiled at a special event held on Tuesday 9 May 2017.
