A Fife charity is inviting people to get into the festive spirit and support people with sight loss at its annual Christmas Coffee morning – as it prepares to open its doors as a local ‘warm space’ this winter.

Seescape, formerly known as Fife Society for the Blind, is holding the event on Friday, December 1, to raise money and awareness about its work.

The event takes place in the charity’s Glenrothes hub in Newark Road at 10.30am. There will be festive stalls, teas, coffees and delicious cakes and snacks, as well as the chance to find out more about the charity.

Lesley Carcary, chief executive of Seescape, said: “Our festive coffee morning is one of the highlights of our year, and we are all looking forward to welcoming people to our hub to share our work and successes over the past year over a relaxed tea or coffee. We hope as many people as possible come along for a festive treat."

Seescape helps those with sight loss live more independently and provides a range of services including rehabilitation, advice, and technology demonstrations.

It also offers social opportunities to those with visual impairments across Fife, as well as community-based assessments, home visits, and drop-ins at its visual impairment hub in Glenrothes to give information on the latest support and technologies available.

This winter, Seescape’s hub will also be a local ‘warm space’ location – a Fife Council initiative to work with community groups to offer warm places for anyone struggling with the cost of living.
