Top volunteer Marion Rees has won an award for her outstanding contribution to Blind Veterans UK at our recent Founders Day Awards.

She said "I enjoy talking with the blind veterans, every single one of them has such a fascinating and individual story to tell – and they love to tell it! If it wasn't for my time befriending I wouldn't ever get to hear such interesting stories.”

It's #transporttuesday, so we're sharing our Blind Veterans UK taxi! 

This taxi has sat with us for over 17 years and has taken veterans, staff and supporters on many important journeys.
 
In the back of our cab, we've heard many fascinating and unique stories from our veterans lives and we've taken them to so many life changing events. We've also had royalty in the back of our cab; including the likes of Prince Pavlos and Russian Princess Jean Galitzine who had once modelled for Vogue.

"I was the first blind veteran out of Afghanistan. I woke up in complete shock with horrific injuries. No hearing in my right ear, almost completely blind, one leg lost and the other a mess."
 
" Blind Veterans UK constantly steps up for me. They never let me down. They are here for me in every way when others aren't."

 "That's why I'm happy to share my story with you. And because I want to thank you too, for helping to make it possible - for helping me get this far."

 Whatever it takes we’ll be there for veterans like Andy, for life. Read his story: https://www.blindveterans.org.uk/andyallenappeal

Tony Robinson, the beloved star of Blackadder and Time Team, has become the latest high-profile supporter to wish Blind Veterans UK a happy 100th birthday.

The celebrated actor, writer and historian – who’s no stranger to the trenches thanks to his iconic work in the World War I set Blackadder Goes Forth – pays tribute to the legacy of Sir Arthur Pearson’s work in 1915 and how Pearson’s commitment to helping blind veterans lives on today.

Thanks for your support, Tony.

The Ted Higgs trophy is the next item we're revealing in our 100 objects centenary campaign.

It's special because it was given to Blind Veterans UK in memory of the late Ted Higgs, a blind veteran who lost all of his sight in 1944, whilst serving with the Royal Artillery in World War Two. It was kindly donated by members of his family and the award is given to a War Blind veteran in recognition of a lifetime achievement.

Last year the award was given to Terry Bullingham, the first veteran to join Blind Veterans UK as a result of being blinded in the Falklands conflict.

We'd like to say a huge thank you to the amazing efforts of Brighton & Hove High School who supported Blind Veterans UK and Crisis at their recent fashion show. The money raised is still being counted but they would of raised in the region £2,500.

Story
Tagline
We help blind and partially-sighted ex-military personnel
Introduction

We're Blind Veterans UK, formerly St Dunstan's, and we believe that no one who's served our country should battle blindness alone.

Currently, we provide professional, specialist support to over 5,000 members (3,000 blind or severely vision-impaired veterans and their families) and we helped 650 new blind veterans in 2011 .

We're here to help with a lifetime's practical and emotional support, regardless of when people served or how they lost their sight. We get our members back on their feet, recovering their independence and discovering a life beyond sight loss.
