A Honiton vision awareness charity has supported a fellow cause.

Axminster Macular Support Group has thanked Leanne Greengrass, founder of See the Future, for a £500 donation.

Ady Henderson, society volunteer at Macular Society, said: “This gift means so much to us.

“We can continue to support our members living within the Axminster community and surrounding villages for another year.

“The connection, friendship and shared experiences provide a much-needed support network for those experiencing and for those living with this common eye complaint.”

The Macular Society fights to end sight loss caused by macular disease.

Every day over 200 people in the UK face the shock of a diagnosis of macular disease.

The Axminster Macular Support Group meets the first Friday of every month (except August) from 10.30am to noon.

Members meet at the Senior Citizens Centre, Church Street.
