Celebrating OPTiC’s Stakeholders Day event

Last month,  OPTiC beneficiairies, project staff, volunteers and our local partner organisations were invited to an event at the Stafford Gatehouse Theatre. Designed to share the exciting journey and impact of the project from the viewpoints of everyone involved, Amy Woodward (Action) and Jayne Palmer (Age UK Stafford and District) who organised the event were particularly keen for those of older people who had benefitted from the project to take centre stage.

For the second time during this project, The Worshipful the Mayor of Stafford Borough Councillor, Angela M Loughran accepted our invitation to attend and officially open our event. The Mayor also delivered a keynote speech on the importance of eye health awareness, local partnership working and provision of support for older people with sight loss.
