So hoping you get the target - have shared this with the staff who teach and support VI students across Manchester schools.

Excellent idea - I know this could really benefit my Gran who has very little remaining vision and struggles to tell the difference between similar objects around the house.

Sue Kent 10th April 2016

Hope everything goes to plan. Looking forward to giving 2 special friends of mine the bands for a surprise present. I know they will find them very useful.

This product is such a simple but incredibly clever idea. It has the potential to help so many people. Well done Hannah!

A simple idea but one which will make a huge difference to the day to day lives of those who are partially sighted or blind. I would like to wish you every success with reaching your crowdfunding target. Sally Morrisroe

Brilliant Idea!! A real help to those who are of limited sight and handicapped in other ways. Look forward to the first shareholders meeting and learning of future projects.
