Owls support SRSB

30 September 2013


Sheffield Wednesday stars showed their support for the Sheffield Royal Society for the Blind (SRSB) on Saturday.

The players warmed up at Hillsborough sporting t-shirts emblazoned with the logo of the charity which serves over 3,300 blind and visually impaired people across Sheffield.

The club and the charity are proud of their relationship, and have worked together this year on several projects to raise both funds and awareness.


SRSB held a penalty shootout at Owls in the Park asking participants to wear specs which simulate different types of sight loss.


Earlier in the year, SWFC players also experienced the difficulties faced by those who are visually impaired as they tried out the simulation specs whilst playing football.


Volunteers from the charity held a bucket collection at Hillsborough before Saturday’s game to raise cash for a new £50,000 mobile information unit which will visit local communities giving help and advice on good eye care.


Both SWFC and SRSB would like to thank everyone who made a donation.
