APPLETON SUPPORTS LOFOB AND LEARNS FROM OUR BLIND AND VISUALLY IMPAIRED FRIENDS
Appleton shared a special and memorable Mandela Day on Monday 18 July with the League of the Friends of the Blind (LOFOB). Established almost a century ago, LOFOB provides educational, vocational, occupation and rehabilitation services to blind and partially sighted people. The youngest LOFOB clients are of pre-school age and the most senior are pensioners. Appleton directors and staff were taken through their paces learning how brail is typed, how games are played, how domestic work is carried out and learning to navigate our way with walking canes. The personal testimonies of bravery and stoicism were inspirational.
The Spirit Community Foundation supports LOFOB in ways designed to materially enhance the quality of life of the clients and Appleton was privileged to play its part in supporting these wonderful people on a very special Mandela Day.
Appleton commits to continue supporting LOFOB.
