Lake District scheme to assist visually impaired people My Guide will open new vistas for visually impaired Continue reading the main story

Martin Ellis has been familiar with the mountains of the Lake District for years – they have become part of his life.

And now he has started training in a scheme that aims to bring his enjoyment to visually impaired walkers.

The My Guide scheme has been set up by Sight Advice South Lakes, which has teamed up with charity Guide Dogs to train volunteers to be buddies to those who need them.

Mr Ellis and 20 other trainees aim to re-kindle the confidence and independence of visually impaired people in the area when their sight starts to fail.

“You are making a difference to somebody else’s life”

Martin Ellis

My Guide trainee

“I get so much more out of guiding a visually impaired person than if I’m on my own,” he said.

“I need to take account of things much more and I’m noticing far more things around us.

“Whether we’re walking in the Fells or towns, I’ll be describing the view or the surroundings, but I actually have to look much more closely.”
