Scottish War Blinded

Scottish War Blinded

"I didn't think Scottish War Blinded was for someone like me, as I lost my sight long after I'd served- but becoming a member has transformed my life. I'd urge other veterans and their families to get in touch."

- Derek MacDonald, National Service Veteran, with Macular Degeneration.
