Just a reminder that our social media accounts are a great way of keeping in touch with what’s happening at the charity for those of you who are active online – or have resolved to be for 2019!
In the run up to the new year we featured the great festive get together of all five of our monthly Café Clubs at the Winter Gardens. We also posted online personalised Christmas and New Year cards featuring staff, volunteers and clients; one of our favourites featured veteran Talking News reader Joy Killip.
We followed up on the success of Eye Elf Advent Calendar with a review of 2018 and media highlights such as 100-year-old Eileen Maher going ‘viral’ globally after revealing she liked a can of Stella Artois and some custard creams. For the record, Eileen has since packed in the Stella! We also supported World Braille Day and featured breaking news for the NHS 10-year plan.
If you’d like to be part of our extended online family, please follow us on Twitter @N_Vision_NW and/or on Facebook athttps://www.facebook.com/nvisionnw/ – these are our two main social media platforms although we use others.
It’s a great way of keeping in touch with us between newsletters or updates via editions of the Talking Newspaper.
Social media is no substitute for the real thing, and we would love to see more of you at our Low Vision Centre, or at the various groups and meetings, fundraisers, information days, Synapptic sessions, activities, social group, exhibitions and more, or indeed out and about at the café clubs or watching the great work in progress of our garden room-mates Urban Organic outside.
