Tom Arthur, MSP for Renfrewshire South constituency, has recently met with the Scottish War Blinded charity following his praise for their work during a debate in the Scottish Parliament on Veterans charities.
Tom visited the new site to find out more about the organisation and the work that they carry out supporting veterans in the west of Scotland.
Speaking after the visit, Tom said:
“I was extremely pleased to be invited to visit the centre to find out more about the work that Scottish War Blinded do.
“The support that they provide to veterans is invaluable, and it was helpful to find out that they support all veterans with sight loss, no matter whether it was caused during conflict, as a result of age related sight loss or a host of other conditions.
“The range of ways in which the help is incredible, from helping veterans live independently to arranging social events.
“It was a real honour to visit them, and would recommend any veterans who have sight loss to contact them to find out if they can help.”
Sally Ross, Centre Manager at the Hawkhead Centre said:
“We were delighted to showcase some of the many activities on offer at the centre, and highlight to Tom that we can provide free regular transport to constituents across Renfrewshire to attend the centre. We would welcome enquiries on 0800 035 6409.”
