My Cane Written by: Heidi Lyons (Mobility Officer Guide Dogs Uk) My Cane is more than a stick to me, just like your eyes it helps me see. I want to travel, find my own way, join in with you all when you play. I wish to do just the same as you, but sometimes I need extra clues, I keep my cane tip on the ground and it helps me find my way around. It feels for changes on the floor and helps me find things like gaps and doors. It helps me know when there are steps and stairs and tells me when to take more care. My Cane's a detector, a bumper a guide and I feel much safer with it by my side. It tells me what's coming up ahead, so bumps and trips I no longer dread. I want to travel, find my own way, join in with you all when you play. My Cane is more than a stick to me, just like your eyes it helps me see. 'No parent is excited at the prospect of their child needing a cane. But every parent gets excited at the prospect of their child reaching their full potential.' #Blindkidscan #Blindnotbroken #canediaries

Hi Everyone! I was wondering if you could be of some help to me and my northerness. I have received an email from a mother who is visiting the UK in April during London Marathon time who is looking for any advice I may have to make her son who is 11 years old and is visually impaired have an enjoyable visit! So if anyone has some suggestions then please do get in touch! Things such as good places to visit, accessibility stuff, travel, accommodation, places to avoid anything really, she hasn't been specific in her request but it would be great if I could get a good old list together of suggestions and tips so that she can have a great time in our capital! Also, I think it would make for a great standing resource to have on the website that I can offer to any other worldwide visitors. Thank you in advance, Charlotte, Scarlett and Sonny xx ...
