Letter from David Clarke, RNIB Director of Services:

Dear Editor,

I’m writing to let readers know that we have a very special festive treat for children with vision impairment in the run up to Christmas.

As you know, Santa receives millions of letters from children each year and works hard to respond to every single one - but he knows that often children with vision impairment are not able to read his reply.

That is why he is teaming up with the Royal National Institute of Blind People (RNIB), who have a squad of elves standing by to make sure his letters are available in formats like braille, audio and large print.

If you know a child with vision impairment who would love to receive a letter from Santa then please send their Christmas letter to Santa Claus, RNIB, Midgate House, Midgate, Peterborough PE1 1TN by Monday 2 December. Alternatively, you can email [email protected] by Friday 20 December for an email with a large-print attachment.

Make sure to include the child’s name age, postal address, contact number and which format they need.

Special thanks to our incredible fundraisers for making this Christmas wish come true.

Merry Christmas!

About RNIB

We are the Royal National Institute of Blind People (RNIB).

Every six minutes, someone in the UK begins to lose their sight. RNIB is taking a stand against exclusion, inequality and isolation to create a world without barriers where people with sight loss can lead full lives. A different world where society values blind and partially sighted people not for the disabilities they’ve overcome, but for the people they are.

RNIB. See differently.
