The charity of the month is RNIB. The full name of this charity is Royal National Institute of Blind People. It is one of the UK’s leading sight loss charities and the largest community of blind and partially sighted people. RNIB does an amazing job providing help and support to those who are experiencing sight loss. Some of the ways the charity provides assistance is through practical and emotional support, campaigning for change, reading services and products in their online shop.
An average of 250 people begin to lose their sight everyday. This is why RNIB has such an important role to play in creating a society where sight loss does not become a hindrance in leaving a best life.
