We are delighted to announce that Pearey House Centre for Visually Impaired is our featured cause for October.
All windfall donations made during the month of October (donations made without logging on) will go to Pearey House Centre for Visually Impaired.
Pearey House was established in 1873, as a Centre for adults that live in North Tyneside who have a visual impairment.
Initially the charity was established as Northumberland and Durham home Teaching Society. In 1884 the name was changed to the Northern Counties Blind Society, and in 1924 became Tynemouth Blind Welfare Society. Today they are known as Pearey House Centre for Visually Impaired.
The charity provides a social hub for blind and visually impaired adults in North Tyneside on a weekly basis. Their facilities include a gym, computer suite therapy room and a library of talking books.
