The importance of good health was celebrated at a Health and Wellbeing Day, hosted by our befriending team, at Devonshire Place in Leicester.

Visitors popped in for advice from a number of local wellbeing organisations, including Leicestershire Police, Specsavers, Leicester Visual Impairment Bowling Club and Disability Sport. Representatives from our Vista Shop, social groups and rehabilitation teams were also on hand to talk about the support and services we can provide.

Supported by the Big Lottery Fund, the day gave local people the opportunity to take part in free complementary therapy taster sessions, including an Indian head massage and Thai foot massage.

Carol Hill, Befriending Officer at Vista, said “The event was a real success and we have received lots of positive feedback. Visitors were able to discover the different services and support available to them and try new therapies they may not have come across before.” 

The event was organised as part of our befriending project, which matches people with sight loss to a volunteer, who visit on a regular basis to help with anything from pursuing a leisure interest to going out in the local area.
