HAVING visual problems herself, the new Miss Cheshire has thrown her weight behind an eyesight charity.
As Catriona Cameron has been diagnosed with dyslexia and Irlens syndrome, which affects her perception, she understands the valuable work Vision Support does to help those with a sight impairment.
She has become the local charity’s patron and is working closely with Vision Support funding officer Jane Arends to collect cash for the cause and raise awareness.
The 23-year-old, from Norton Village in Runcorn, will be joining staff at the annual Vision Support event day on Saturday, June 13, at Llangollen’s Royal Pavilion.
She will also help Vision Support promote the importance of regular eye checks and back forthcoming projects as well as the charity’s regular Cheshire Mobile Information Unit which visits towns dispensing help and advice.
Catriona said: “After my diagnosis I can see the bigger picture. That’s why I wanted to help Vision Support.”
Jane said: “We look forward to working closely with Catriona in the near future and to promote the independence of those with a vision impairment. We are a local charity covering Cheshire and North Wales. To help, call me on 01244 381515 or email email@example.com.”
