THE historic Towneley Hall has joined forces with a Burnley Lions Club to host a one-day exhibition for the blind and visually impaired.

The free event will bring together service providers and leading technology developers to offer a one-stop shop for information, support and advice.

Ken Darwen, Towneley Hall manager, said: “This will also be a great opportunity for people to find out more about the services that are available, and to chat to others in a similar situation."

There will also be representatives from the falls prevention team and Braille IT, who will be giving simple demonstrations in the use of Braille.

It takes place between 10amand 4pm on Saturday, November 18. For more information contact Frank from Burnley Lions on 01282 702348.
