Co. Tyrone based, Glenelly Sheepdog Society raised a fantastic £2,000 by holding a dinner and auction in November 2015 to help people living with sight loss face the future with confidence and without fear.

Agnes Mullan, Community Access Worker, RNIB said: “We are thrilled to receive £2,000 from the Glenelly Sheepdog Society.

“We appreciate the effort it takes to raise such a fantastic amount and we would like to thank everyone who supported the dinner, the organisers and society members for all their hard work and generosity.

“We estimate that there are over 31,000 people living with significant sight loss in Northern Ireland and this number is increasing.

“The Glenelly Sheepdog Society’s support means that our key services will continue to provide essential support across Northern Ireland.

“We’re RNIB NI and we’re here for everyone affected by sight loss.

“If you, or someone you know, has a sight problem, RNIB can help.”
