BlindAid: new name for Bermondsey Street-based charity

The event, which took place at Methodist Central Hall in Westminster, marked the change of name by one of Londonís oldest charities.

The Metropolitan Society for the Blind, which occupies Lantern House in Bermondsey Street, rebranded itself BlindAid earlier this year.

Chief executive John Harris said: "BlindAid provides a unique combination of services specifically designed to help people overcome the sense of isolation, lack of confidence and depression that frequently accompanies sight loss."

He added: "Staff and volunteers give time, friendship and knowledge to improve independence and quality of life for blind and partially sighted people in London."
