On October 1st 2013, we hosted an Eye Health Awareness event in the Guildhall Shopping Centre in Stafford. This half day event was designed to inform older people in the community about getting the support and care they need to prevent avoidable sight loss, as well as to celebrate Older People’s Day.
The Worshipful the Mayor of Stafford Borough, Councillor Angela M Loughran opened the event with a speech focussing on the importance of empowering older people to get the help they need and OPTiC‘s role in laying the foundation for positive change in Stafford.
As more visitors arrived throughout the morning, there was a real buzz in the air. Excitingly, a few visitors expressed an interest in getting involved in OPTiC and that result, along with comments from the people who attended equates to a very successful day!
