ACTION for Blind People’s pioneering mobile Sight Loss Information Service will be visiting Milngavie and Bearsden this month.

Packed with the latest aids, equipment and specialist advice for blind and partially sighted people, it will open its doors to people interested in or affected by visual impairment.

Staffed by a friendly and knowledgeable team, the mobile carries the latest technology and gadgets to improve daily life.

From vibrating bank note detectors to talking microwaves and tin lids, staff on the unit offer impartial, practical advice and support.

Jean Slater from Action for Blind People’s Sight Loss Information Service said: “Everybody is welcome to come along to visit us on the mobile. Whether you are visually impaired or know somebody who may be having problems with their sight, please pay us a visit and pick up information or ask us questions. Visitors can try out a wide range of daily living aids or the latest computer and magnification technology.”

On Tuesday, April 17, it will be at the front of Milngavie Library and CE Centre from 10am till noon and in the car park at Brookwood Library, Bearsden, between 2 and 4pm.
