We are pleased to share with you the opportunity to participate in the first Sight Village online event.
Sight Village will be presenting Sight Village Virtual; an online event providing a series of videos, podcasts and interactive workshops from the UK’s leading providers of products and services - all from the comfort of your own home!
There will be contributions from over 20 exhibitors including ourselves at Torch Trust, advertising our new leaflet called Introducing Torch Trust.
For many this is an unmissable event for people who are blind or partially-sighted, for professionals supporting and advising VIPs and for all businesses and other organisations wishing to improve their services for the visually impaired.
QAC Sight Village is described as “The UK's Leading exhibition for blind and partially sighted people and for those experiencing sight problems”. Each year thousands of people visit their events to find out at first hand the latest technology, products and support services available to people who are blind or partially sighted. Exhibitors include charities, commercial companies and voluntary organisations from across the UK, Europe and the world. In addition to the main show in Central England, there are a number of roadshow events in cities such as London, Leeds, Manchester, Exeter and Cardiff. Admission is FREE to all the events.
Sight Village Virtual will take place from:
Wednesday 22nd July – Thursday 23rd July
10am – 2pm
Torch in brief
Torch Trust's aims can be summarised as enabling people with sight loss to discover Christian faith and lead fulfilling Christian lives.
Towards this end we provide Christian resources and activities for blind and partially sighted people worldwide. Our services are offered to all who experience sight loss, of all faiths or none, and including those with sight loss who have other disabilities.
Among our services, Torch provides Christian literature, including a free lending library and a range of magazines, in various accessible formats. We also promote Christian fellowship through over 60 local Groups across the UK. Our international arm involves Torch working in partnership with others and being involved in various projects, especially in Malawi which in turn serves the needs of blind and partially sighted people in various other African countries.
Torch Trust has a driving vision for people with sight loss, wherever in the world they may live. Our seven-fold charter is that every blind or partially sighted person may have the opportunity to:
- Explore Christian faith and discover Jesus
- Grow as a Christian
- Enjoy a fulfilling devotional life
- Access Christian activities and resources they need
- Join a church of their choice
- Develop their invaluable God-given gifting
- Contribute to the life of the church
