Resource Centre news


Coventry Resource Centre for the Blind (CRCB) in Earlsdon  Avenue South continues to be very busy with social groups, ICT classes, the music group and their latest project, cookery classes for blind or partially sighted people.

All the Christmas events held at the Centre, including the Winter Warmer and volunteers’ party, were very happy occasions. The pantomime presented on behalf of the Centre which was held on 5 January at St. Martin’s on Green Lane was well supported and a great success. Next year Caramba Theatre are hoping to perform Wind In The Willows so that’s something to look forward to!


Urgently Required

CRCB is looking to recruit group facilitators to lead and organise social groups for people who are blind or partially sighted, with immediate start dates.

There are separate vacancies for a youth group and social and friendship groups for older people. There are also vacancies for teaching small groups of blind or partially sighted people to cook easy healthy meals in their specially adapted kitchen.

They are also looking for volunteers to support these groups and also for help with office and general tasks.

If you are interested in any of the above, or know someone who might be, either as a volunteer or group leader, please contact Rookie at the Resource Centre on 7671 7522.
