Helen Rogers, from the RNIB, said: “We’re looking for people who are passionate about improving the lives of people with sight loss to join our group in Durham.

“It’s completely up to the group what kind of fundraising events to hold – anything goes, from coffee mornings to fashion shows or sporting events.

“Even if you only have a few hours to spare you can help.”
