A massive congratulations to our wonderful Board Member Dr Maggie Woodhouse (and also the inspiration for our very popular of Maggie’s Club) who received the Queen’s Anniversary Prize from HRH The Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall for her incredible work at The Down Syndrome Vision Research Unit.
We were all delighted to be invited to run workshops in Llanfyllin High School in Powys, where we all made some new friends and had lots of fun. Hoping to be returning later in the year as well as delivering workshops in other areas of Powys.
For the first time the UCAN team ran workshops in Ysgol Bae Baglan in Neath Port Talbot for young people with sight loss. The project was very well attended and we are all looking forward to the next time we visit.
The team had a fantastic week at Milford Haven School as part of the RNIB Cymru’s project Future Insight. The team spent a week creating a performance, which was shared on the last day with pupils, family and friends.
The UCAN team ran workshops for young people in the Torfaen areas as part of the RNIB Future Insight Project. The workshops, which are funded by the Big Lottery proved to be very popular and the team is looking forward to going back again very soon.
