RNIB have recently announced that they are selling the building in Bedminster, where their offices and our community hub are currently located. They say they will be moving to another location in Bristol, but they have not decided where yet. beofre making this announcement they turned off the telephone number that visually impaired people have been using to contact the centre for almost 25 years. They did not tell anyone they were going to do this, not even the staff there.
RNIB announced they are selling the Bedminster building without warning and without talking to local visually impaired people about what will happen afterwards, or what will be done with the money raised by the sale. This has left many people feeling very hurt and angry.
If you wish to express your concern about the loss of this familiar and much-loved building you can write to Sally Harvey, RNIB Chief Executive. Her email address is: email@example.com
