SeeAbility celebrated its 220th birthday at the Bank of England on March 26.
Vice president of SeeAbility Sir John Major and Bank of England governor Mark Carney appeared at the event to speak about the charity’s focus on ensuring those with disabilities are not excluded and are valued citizens in the workplace, in education and in everyday life.
CEO of SeeAbility Lisa Hopkins said: ‘Over the last 220 years, SeeAbility has witnessed some incredible personal stories of triumph. We’ve seen ambition in the place of defeat and confidence emerge where it once never existed. As we celebrate these successes, it’s only right that we set our sights on achieving even more ambitious futures for people with learning disabilities, autism and sight loss.’
