Blind Driving Challenge
Tony Hynd at SIG Roofing Rotherham branch has been completely blind for the last 15+ years. He has received support from the Sheffield Royal Society for the Blind over the years and now wants to help them raise much needed funds by taking part in their Blind Driving Challenge!
On Friday 17th August 2018 he will drive 3 miles (2 laps of the course) in a dual-control car while receiving instructions from a qualified driving instructor. The event is open to all, whether blind, visually impaired or sighted, from 11 years of age. (Drivers who are not visually impaired will wear a blindfold to ensure a fair race!)
The event is organised in conjunction with Safety 1st Driving Academy and all funds raised will go directly to Sheffield Royal Society for the Blind. If you would like to sponsor Tony you can, by contacting him or his support worker Nathan Wigfield on 01709 835500 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Honest John’s our Hero!
It’s the small things that often make the biggest difference. In Ms Duggan’s case, she hadn’t even noticed she’d lost her purse when SIG Roofing driver, John, knocked on her door and returned it to her. She’d left it on the roof of her car and driven off, before John found it on the A29. As Ms Duggan said in a thank you email to the SIG Roofing Horsham branch where John is based: “He picked it up, found my driver’s license with my address and returned it to me. When he knocked on the door I hadn’t even realised I’d lost it.
I am so grateful that there are people around as kind and honest as John, so could you please pass on my gratitude.”
