Commenting on the news that Carwyn Jones AM has retained his position as First Minister of Wales, RNIB Cymru Director Ceri Jackson welcomed his leadership of the fifth assembly:
“Congratulations to Carwyn Jones on securing another term as First Minister.
“With five more people beginning to lose their sight every day in Wales, RNIB Cymru hopes that Carwyn holds true to his promise to tackle the failing system in our hospital eye clinics. No one should lose their sight because of cancelled or delayed appointments.
Following the general election on 5 May we wrote to new Assembly Members to make them aware of the work that RNIB Cymru does and our priorities for this new Assembly.
Dear Assembly Member
On Friday 29 April, six candidates from the major parties standing for election in Llandudno and North Wales faced a lively crowd in Venue Cymru, just six days before the elections across Wales on 5 May.
The session was joint hosted by North Wales Vision Alliance, and their members from North Wales Society for the Blind and Vision Support as well as RNIB Cymru.
Two weeks ago, Bridgend AM Carwyn Jones was delighted to celebrate the achievement of Valleys to Coast in gaining the RNIB Visibly Better Platinum Award for its Llys Ton Extra Care facility in Kenfig Hill. The Platinum award is the highest level of accreditation the RNIB can award.
