Fife-based Seescape scooped a Community Award at the Specsavers-sponsored Visionary Conference in Birmingham last month for its work supporting people with sight loss.

‘We are incredibly proud to be recognised with this award and grateful to all colleagues for their daily work to support people with sight loss in Fife,’ said Seescape chief executive Lesley Carcary (pictured above).
