Celebrating 100 years of helping the blind


Dorset Blind Association (DBA) is throwing a centenary ball to celebrate 100 years of supporting blind and partially sighted people in the county.

The black tie event will be taking place at the Hilton Hotel in Bournemouth, on Saturday October 13. Guests will enjoy a three-course dinner, dancing to a live band, plus raffle, auction and casino. The ball is being sponsored by Dorset-based financial planning firm Blue Sky Financial Planning. 

DBA, a registered charity founded in 1918, offers practical services and emotional support to visually impaired individuals across Dorset.

Chief Executive Jonathan Holyhead:

“This is a chance to say a big thank you to the many people who have helped us over the years. It is also an important fundraising event. We are not funded by the government or Royal National Institute of Blind People so 100 per cent of what we do needs to be supported through fundraising.”
