About Sound for Sight
Sound for Sight is registered charity that raises funds and awareness for sight loss conditions through the power of live music.
Sound for Sight was created by the CEO of Soundcheque and former PR Manager for The Times, Laura Westcott, after discovering her friend, Yvette Chivers, has Retinitis Pigementosa (RP). Laura spent one week wearing pinhole vision glasses to raise awareness and funds sight loss.
Laura finished her challenge with a concert on World Sight Day, hosted by Jeremy Vine with performances from established and emerging artists. The concert was so good, we have since hosted two more and have officially registered as a charity.
The audience can wear pin-hole glasses during the show to get a brief insight into what it’s like to live with sight loss, and also to heighten the live music experience.
