Hervey Bay Independent : 1st January 2015
Brightening the day for vision-impaired Having a vision impairment, regardless of how minor or major it might be, can be a debilitating and even isolating condition. The Hervey Bay Blind and Vision Impaired Social Group aims to bring a little light into the lives of residents by hosting a monthly luncheon in conjunction with the local Lions and Lioness Clubs. Just before Christmas, the Social Group enjoyed a beautiful roast lunch at Torbay, bringing members together in the festive spirit. Social Group publicity offi cer, Lyn Furness, said the partnership between the community organisations was vital to improving the quality of life of residents living with a vision impairment. “During the year, we often get speakers or have information displays,” Lyn said.
