The newly refurbished Lena Anderton Meeting Room was officially opened on the 24th October 2007 by His Royal Highness The Duke of Gloucester. The Duke toured The Sight Centre, 31 Scott Street, Keighley before officially opening the Lena Anderton Meeting Room.

Grandson of King George V and second cousin to the Queen. The Duke trained as an architect but has carried out full time Royal duties since 1970. He supports many organisations in the areas of architecture, healthcare and cultural relations.

Work on the refurbishment of former Social Centre for the Blind was completed in April 2007 as part of the Associations Centenary celebrations. Now known as the Lena Anderton Meeting Room. The room was renamed in memory of the Late Lena Anderton, a Friend of the Association and who's legacy made the refurbishment possible.
