 A NATIONAL military charity is reaching out to ‘hidden’ carers of blind and partially sighted veterans.

Blind Veterans UK is supporting this year’s Carers Week, which runs until Sunday. Staff and volunteers from the charity, which has a centre in Ovingdean, Brighton, will be at an information fair at The Best Western Brighton Hotel in Kings Road on Thursday from 1.30pm to 3.30pm.

Ovingdean manager Lesley Garven said: “We hope to encourage those who are currently caring for an ex-service man or woman with vision impairment but are not currently aware of the help available, to seek the charity’s support.”
