Sarah Champion MP backs veterans’ charity
SARAH Champion met former servicemen and women with sight loss as she backed a military charity’s campaign.
The Rotherham MP attended a reception held by Blind Veterans UK, which helps former services personnel to lead independent lives.
Around 6,000 veterans in Yorkshire are battling severe sight loss, the charity has estimated.
Ms Champion said: “I’m pleased to pledge my support to Blind Veterans UK and its No One Alone campaign to ensure that no veteran in Rotherham will have to battle blindness on their own.
