Our team was greatly saddened to hear of the passing of our member and dear friend John Leonard.

John, who was living with age-related macular degeneration (AMD), was a dedicated member and passionate advocate for sight loss. He was very generous with his time and regularly took part in our events. He was always supportive, enthusiastic and so kind to each member of our team. He was a true gentleman and he will be missed.

The entire team would like to extend our sincere condolences to the Leonard family. John passed away peacefully on Sunday 9 May 2021. May he rest in peace.
