Living Pictures Donation

I would like to thank the Vinchel Foundation for their generous donation. Your contribution will help towards our work benefitting blind and partially sighted people.

We give thousands of blind and partially sighted people the opportunity to borrow our Touch to See books from a free postal library.

Our books are enjoyed at home with family and friends, in schools, or for adults as members of one of our community Touch to See Book Clubs around the country.

Our key aim is improving the quality of life for blind and partially sighted children and adults with the provision of our Touch to See books from our free postal library. This is only possible due to the amazing generosity and support of organisations like the Vinchel Foundation.

Our beneficiaries are the best people to explain how important our work is and the impact it has on their lives, so I’d like to share Henry’s experience with you.

Henry is almost 5 years old, he has nystagmus and is registered severely sight impaired. He lives with his mum, dad and older brother Ollie on their family run dairy farm. His mum told us:

“Henry loves to enjoy farming life and doesn’t let his visual impairment hold him back – sometimes a little more caution would be welcomed! We don’t want Henry to miss out on anything and this is one of the reasons we love Living Paintings books. He loves the tactile pictures that enable him to fully experience the story. The wide range of books are fantastic and Henry will be able to enjoy these for many years to come. Henry loves sharing the books with all the family and showing the pictures from his ‘special books’ to everyone”.

With your help we can continue to inspire more visually impaired people like Henry.

On behalf of Trustees, staff and volunteers at Living Paintings as well as the many blind and partially sighted people we support with our services and who will benefit from your kind donation, thank you.

Yours sincerely,

Camilla Oldland Chief Executive, Living Pictures.
