Worcester residents are invited to attend a morning of coffee and cake hosted by Blind Veterans UK, the charity for vision-impaired ex-Service men and women.
The event, which will run from 10:00am – 12:00pm on Thursday 6 July, will be held at the Guildhall.
Victoria Beech, Regional Fundraiser, says: “As an organisation we are very aware that there are many more veterans out there that could benefit from our support.
