Insight Winter 2016

Here for people with sight loss Hello Everyone, We recently held our annual general meeting (AGM) and it was lovely to see so many people attending. We were really pleased that Valerie Wood, local author and long standing supporter of HERIB, accepted the role of Vice President of HERIB and we welcome Val to the HERIB ’family’. I was delighted to accept our latest award on behalf of the HERIB team last week at the Visionary conference in Birmingham. We won the award for the ‘Best Use of Technology’ which reflects the hard work of our Training Officer Tracy Atkinson in delivering one-to-one and group assistive technology tuition to help people with visual impairments make the best use of technology. We may soon need to get a bigger trophy cabinet!! The building work at Beech Holme Court is now nearly complete with each flat having a new kitchen and new windows fitted and the refurbishments are looking really good. We do currently have a couple of properties vacant, so if you, or someone you know, may be interested, please give us a call and we’ll be happy to show you around. We’ve also been working closely with the Hull 2017 City of Culture team over the last few months and are very excited that our art project is one of only sixty from 600 plus applications that were awarded funding. Our project will involve the making of a tactile sculpture which will eventually go on display in the eye hospital in Hull. The project will start in in March 2017 and if you are interested in taking part please get in touch now to register your interest. So, as always, it has been very busy here at HERIB and we have some exciting things to look forward to. It seems very early to be saying Merry Christmas but I hope you all enjoy the festive season and I look forward to seeing some of you at our annual Christmas parties. Wishing you all good health, wealth and happiness. Sandra Ackroyd, Chief Executive

News from our Board of Trustees On behalf of the Board of Trustees, I would like to congratulate all our staff and volunteers on their recent award win. We have a very dedicated team and it’s wonderful to see HERIB get the recognition it deserves in these awards. It’s good to see the work on the flats at Beech Holme Court nearing completion. We welcome the significant investment from Places for People; the flats are now much improved. It’s always nice for me to have the opportunity to meet and have a chat with some of our members, as I did at our recent AGM. As always, we are keen to hear of any suggestions you have about how we can develop our range of services to meet the needs of visually impaired people living in the Hull and East Riding area so we welcome your feedback and look forward to hearing from you. Kind regards Hollie Haeney Chair of Trustees

New Vice President

Beech Holme Tandem Club The Beech Holme Tandem Club is based at HERIB and was formed in about 1952 by a group of cyclists from the Cyclists Touring Club so that blind back riders could enjoy the pleasures of cycling through the countryside with sighted front riders.

HERIB is delighted to announce award winning Beverley based author Val Wood as the charity's new Vice President (pictured above centre with HERIB Chief Executive Sandra Ackroyd and Chair of Trustees Hollie Haeney) The official announcement was made at HERIB’s recent Annual General Meeting where the author talked about her thirty year association with the charity and her new book, No Place for a Woman, which was released on 20th October. Sandra Ackroyd, Chief Executive of HERIB, added: “We are delighted that Val has so kindly agreed to become our Vice President, her support means a great deal to us. We look forward to working with her in the future to help us make an even greater impact in improving the lives of visually impaired people.” “HERIB and I have had a very long association and as a supporter of all the work they and many other charities do,” said Val Wood. “I am delighted and thrilled to be invited to become Vice President and gratified to think they have put their trust in me to fulfil the role.”

The club meets each Wednesday evening and follows a set runs list to various East Riding villages, with back up provided by a HERIB minibus, and sighted members, of the club who do all they can to make your ride as safe and interesting as possible. The club would welcome new visually impaired members and anyone interested in joining, or simply wanting to know more, should contact: Robin Russell 01482 846246

Benefits Advice With all the changes to benefits that are taking place, particularly in relation to the change from Disability Living Allowance to Personal Independent Payment, we understand that many of our members may be worried about how this will affect their lives on a day to day basis. If you need advice about your benefits, we may be able to help, please contact us on 01482 342297.

TV Licence

“"So we would encourage anyone who is severely sight impaired to take advantage of this offer if they haven't already done so." A concession TV Licence costs £72.75 for colour and only £24.50 for a black and white TV Licence.

If you are blind, severely sight impaired, or live with someone who is, you may want to check that you are not missing out on a half price TV licence. Alison Stannard, Services Manager at HERIB explains: "If you live with someone who is blind, they are entitled to a concessionary TV Licence, which is half the price of a full fee licence. It covers you, as well as anyone else living in your household. You can pay for your licence in a number of ways- online with a debit or card, monthly or quarterly direct debit, over-the-counter or by phone or post." Digital TV also allows you to listen to a verbal description of what is happening on the screen in between the dialogue, which makes programmes more accessible to people with sight loss. “Thanks to advances in technology such as audio description and assistive technology for laptops and tablets, television is still a very popular form of entertainment for many blind and partially sighted people,” continued Alison.

If you are living with someone who is eligible and yet already have a full fee TV Licence in your name, you can contact TV Licensing to transfer the licence to the name of the person who registered as severely sight impaired to take advantage of the discount. To do this, simply fill in the form available at or contact TV Licensing on 0300 790 0366. Anyone affected by sight loss can get TV Licensing information by email or in Braille, large print or audio by calling 0300 555 0300.

A Sight to Behold HERIB is celebrating receiving a grant for its “A Sight to Behold” project from the Creative Communities Programme as part of Hull UK City of Culture 2017. The project will involve a partnership of organisations, communities, groups and visually impaired individuals from across a variety of sight support charities in Yorkshire and Lincolnshire, who will work together to develop the multi-sensory sculpture that, once complete, will go on display in the Hull Eye Hospital and will be accessible to the thousands of visitors who pass through the hospital doors each week. The project is one of 60 new projects, ranging from photography exhibitions to music and food festivals and choral and orchestral concerts to audio-visual installations that will receive funding as part of the Hull 2017 programme. These will see local artists, community groups, cultural and other organisations in the city working with local people of all ages to create new artistic work, events, installations and other activity throughout 2017, one of the most significant years in Hull's history. The innovative scheme is the result of funding through the Hull 2017 Creative Communities Programme, which was set up to celebrate, nurture and support local talent and develop opportunities for emerging artists. A total of £750,000 is being invested in the programme.

Sandra Ackroyd, Chief Executive of HERIB said “We are delighted that our project is one of the projects chosen to be funded; it is a real opportunity for visually impaired people to come together and develop an iconic sculpture, for all to enjoy, which can prove that art can transcend the traditional notions of sight and vision”. Delivered in partnership with the Big Lottery Fund, a Principal Partner of Hull 2017, Hull 2017 invited individuals and organisations to come up with ideas for new projects that were creative at heart, celebrated arts and culture and would have a transformative effect, particularly within local communities around Hull. The successful applicants are set to receive between £300 and £10,000 each to develop their proposals, which will be an important part of the Hull 2017 cultural programme. All projects put community involvement or participation at their heart, reflecting the diversity of the city and will appeal to people of all ages. Anyone who might like to participate in the Sight to Behold Project or who would like to receive more information on other opportunities within the City of Culture programme of activities, should contact Sinead at HERIB on 01482 342297 to register your interest.

Visionary Award

Telephone Befriending Our telephone befriending service continues to go from strength to strength with our dedicated volunteers making regular phone calls to members who, for whatever reason, aren’t able to get out and about.

In October HERIB attended the Visionary Annual Conference in Birmingham. Visionary is a national infrastructure organisation for all local sight support charities. As well as sharing information and knowledge, networking and making new contacts, we also attended a gala dinner and awards evening where HERIB was nominated for three awards. We are delighted to say that we won the award for “Best Use of Technology’”. The award reflects the hard work that our Training Officer Tracy Atkinson has been undertaking in developing our Assistive technology Suite, offering one to one training both in the suite and in people’s homes and facilitating ‘Techshare’ groups for visually impaired people. It has also involved working with other local organisations to deliver courses such as family genealogy , as well as Tracy becoming an accredited trainer for Dolphin software. If you would like to know more about our assistive technology training programme, please call us on 01482 342297.

From the feedback received so far, we know these calls are making a huge difference to someone’s day and at the same time reducing feelings of loneliness and isolation. Comments have included: “My telephone befriender calls me every Thursday and is so nice and lovely. I look forward to her call and they always cheer me up”

“I look forward to my call, value the support I get and like the fact I can talk with someone outside the family” If you, or someone you know, may benefit from receiving a friendly phone call, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.

Or if you love to chat, are a good listener and have some spare time, then you might be the perfect volunteer. For more information about our Telephone Befriending Service, please call our Telephone Befriending Coordinator, Karen Dunderdale on 01482 342297.

We enjoyed a spectacular September as some of our supporters took on amazing challenges in aid of HERIB. Three very brave ladies Bryony Kent , Sally Dowde and Victoria Heath jumped out of a plane from 15,0000ft on a tandem sky dive raising more than £2,000 between them. The amazing Elaine Cornforth, Trina Emmerson, Bobby Bassett, Sarah Coutts, David Fitzpatrick and Helen and Duncan Johnson ran the Great North Run and together raised in excess of £2,000

A huge thank you to Lesley Wadforth from Health in Harmony (pictured above left with HERIB member Clare Potter) and everyone who took part in Lesley’s yoga challenge which raised more than £2,000. Namaste!

Our special thanks go to the members of the Asian Cultural Association in Hull who held their annual dinner dance complete with traditional Indian food, dancing and music and raised an amazing £2,500. A huge thank to everyone who has donated their new style five pound note to us as part of our #firstfiver campaign. We really appreciate your support and remember…. Every little Helps!

The amazing Govind Manocha from Spring Estate Agents successfully ran this year’s Hull Marathon and raised a whopping £660. And humans and dogs alike took a walk across the Humber Bridge to raise just over £250 on our Wags and Walk Day.
