Sue Harrod launched her book, Poetry in Vision, at the charity's garden party on Sunday 8 July. The picture above shows Julian Jackson, fresh from his Big Blind Walk, listening to excerpts from the book recorded by Sue.

The book is inspired by Sue's personal experience of retinal surgery and provides an insight into coping with poor vision through humour and emotion.

Poetry in Vision by Sue Harrod

The book has been reviewed by Dr Sarah Bell, Research Fellow at the University of Exeter Medical School in Truro:

‘Poetry in Vision’ is a super book, bringing home the importance of family, friends, passions and creativity in life. From stories of Ukranian love songs, mistaken identities and stowaway pants, through to the pleasures of sea swimming, surfing and paddle boarding, Sue’s lively and engaging style makes you smile throughout, yet also manages to capture the quirks and challenges of life with sight loss. Nurturing the spirit of adventure, this book is a must-read for anyone with a curiosity for life, and the many ups, downs and diversions that unfold along the way.

124 pages, softback. Price £15 plus £3 postage and packing.
