Regardless of how long ago they served, or even how veterans loss their sight – whether through illness or old age or while in Service - if they are now battling severe sight loss, Blind Veterans UK can help.

The charity provides rehabilitation and training, along with emotional support and a wide range of equipment and social activities. This is delivered through its UK-wide network of welfare officers and centres, including in Brighton.

Regional fundraiser, Rachel Chitty said: “As we enter 2015 and mark 100 years of Blind Veterans UK, we will be holding a number of events throughout Sussex to celebrate and raise further funds for our Brighton centre.
