Brighton College has long been supporting Blind Veterans UK in Ovingdean, previously St Dunstans.
Our pupils have been regularly visiting residents of Blind Veterans for the past five years on a weekly basis, for tea, coffee and a chat.
Another link we have the Blind Veterns UK is through one of our OBs David Grigor (Le. 1982-87) who is an accomplished artist residing in Scotland. David is an art instructor for Scottish War Blinded in Edinburgh, who annually team up with Brighton Veterans UK to organise an Exhibition in Brighton at the Brighton Centre. This year the exhibition is on from 9th-20th October and there are 35 paintings on the theme of pets, and animals which are auctioned to raise funds for the Art Department at Blind Veterans UK in Brighton.
