We are delighted to announce the launch of our new 5-year strategy the Right to Dream. This strategy centres on deafblind people’s ‘Right to Dream’ of a more inclusive future where their dreams of a more equal and meaningful life are realised. Furthermore, in this strategy we outline how we will work to ensure that public services and policy makers understand that access to inclusive communication and the support necessary to freely navigate the world should be upheld as a right and not a privilege. https://dbscotland.org.uk/right-to-dream/

I have been fundraising for Deafblind Scotland for many years. this year I was going to be doing a couple of Kiltwalks. but due to the COVID-19 pandemic so many fundraising events have been cancelled and Deafblind Scotland rely on donations that are generated by these events. Every day I walk over 2.6 miles and had put up a couple of pictures of myself on Whatsapp with my guide dog Peat next to a warning sign! Some folk have come back at me saying. “cool t-shirt”. so I thought I would put up a picture of myself and Peat everyday wearing a different t-shirt over the next 26 days covering 2.6 miles at least!! the added fun factor is that I have not trimmed my beard or hair since the 4th March when my daughter got married, and intend to keep this going till I emerge out of lockdown! I will combine all the pictures, including some of previous ones and hopefully will be able to see the beard grow before your very eyes!!
