NCBI Firewalk – Firewalking for people with sight loss

by | Jul 20, 2018

We are delighted to partner with NCBI (National Council for the Blind Ireland) to deliver a Charity Firewalk. The NCBI Firewalk is on Friday 5th October 2018 and will be hosted at the NCBI Head Office. NCBI is the national sight loss agency for Ireland. They are a not for profit charity, which offers support and services to people of all ages who are experiencing difficulties with their eyesight.

More about NCBI

NCBI provide a service to over 8000 people every year, of which, 2000 are accessing NCBI services for the first time. And with an aging population, the number of people needing access to NCBI service is increasing by 12% each year.

NCBI’s Core Services are:

  • Provide services in the local community
  • Help people make the most of their useful vision
  • Help people to live independently
  • Help people to rediscover, or continue to enjoy reading
  • Help people access information and communicate through technology
  • Help people to learn new skills
  • Help people with employment issues
  • Help others to make their services accessible
  • Produce information in accessible formats
  • Help to increase awareness about sight loss issues

All of this takes a lot of resources and Fundraising Events like this Charity Firewalk can make an enormous difference. Will you join us and help NCBI raise €10,000 or more?

“What counts in life is not the mere fact that we have lived. It is what difference we have made to the lives of others that will determine the significance of the life we lead.”
