Students also heard from Cam Sight worker and spokesman Warren Wilson, who gave a a talk in assemblies about his own sight loss, which occurred suddenly from a genetic condition while he was at a sixth form college in Cambridge.
Principal Simon Holmes said: “It’s not about people with sight loss not doing things. It’s about putting in the correct support so they can – that’s why we’re raising money.”
Cam Sight aims to support local people of all ages with low vision and blindness to live the lives they choose by ensuring they have the information, support and technology to be independent and valued members of their communities.
