NOTTINGHAM ROYAL SOCIETY FOR THE BLIND (NRSB)
Nottinghamshire Royal Society for the Blind (NRSB) seeks to improve the quality of life for local blind and vision impaired people, providing training, practical advice and a variety of interesting pursuits, eg dancing, woodwork, pottery, sewing, cookery, flower arranging and music.
The Centre for all these activities is at Ortzen Street, Radford, where there is a wonderful resource area and talking books can be obtained on loan. Also there is a large stock of aids designed to make life easier, eg kitchen equipment, clocks, watches and games.
Outdoor activities are also arranged, including walking, cycling, sailing, bowling and canoeing. There is a Welfare Officer always ready to help and advise and home visitors for those people who would like one.
All this costs a great deal of money so 'Friends of the Blind' help to organise events to raise as much money as possible. Donations, covenants and bequests are always welcome and should be made payable to the Nottinghamshire Royal Society for the Blind (not to the National Institute).
There is also a Mobile Resource bus which goes to various outdoor activities, fetes, shows, etc.
