The event was attended by one of WTN’s special friends – Tom McInulty, who was accompanied by his guide dog Toby. Tom was one of the Senior Regional Directors of the Macular Society until his retirement in 2020. Tom lost his sight in 1983 and since then has been dedicated to fundraising for different charities for the visually impaired. He has been a trustee of Southampton Sight for 28 years and helps them with vision loss awareness training.
