Events

We regularly hold events to raise money for our charity and to raise awareness of the challenges facing people with a sensory loss. In 2017 some of these events included a charity auction with lots such as sporting experiences and family attraction tickets, as well as a wine tasting evening hosted with Helen Jones Wines. Thank you to everyone who supported these events.

The dates of our current 2018 events can be found below. If you would like to attend, support or volunteer at one of these events then please get in touch with Shannon Gorman on 0161 480 2612 or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

 

We recently held our See Hear event on 18th September 2018..

...bringing together more than 30 organisations and groups who can be of benefit to those with a sight or hearing loss. The event was free to attend and we had a fantastic turn out.

There are some images from the day below
