Members steward at the National Federation of the Blind Conference

Dundee Soroptimists acted as sighted helpers at the National Federation of the Blind UK Central Branch Conference on 13th June in Perth.  4 of them are seen in the centreback row along with the speakers while delegates and their 4-legged ‘eyes’ are seated. This is one of our favourite projects supporting this friendly group who have so many difficulties themselves which they accept and work with on a daily basis. Around 6 members of our club get involved and enjoy the work but we continually have a lot to learn in trying not to ask ‘stupid’ questions like ‘where did you hang your coat and what colour is it?!’ Thankfully they just laugh and are also so grateful for the support they get from us
