People can find about more about sight loss thanks to a dedicated bus which spreads the word about eye health.

The Beacon Centre, the area’s leading sight loss charity, will be sending out the Beacon Bus to Queen Square in Wolverhampton on May 17 between 10am and 4pm.

People who hop on board will be able to find out more about the work of the charity as well as how sight loss issues could affect them.

They can also find out more about the issues facing those who have dementia and sight loss as part of a range of activities taking place in the city for Dementia Awareness Week.

Beacon Centre information officer Pete Moodie said: “The Beacon bus is a completely free service with our friendly staff offering sight loss advice and guidance or demonstrations of assistive living aids and equipment.”
