Blind Life in Durham

Blind Life in Durham is a social charity. We are a friendly pro-active group of blind and partially sighted people that meet regularly at events where we have chats and plenty of laughs. We provide monthly talks on a range of subjects, social events; days out together; New Age Kurling; and New Age Bowls. Blind Life in Durham also enters New Age Kurling Competitions with any members wishing to take part.
