I would love to win this prize for my uncle. He is just 46yrs old and lives on his own. He has had 2 transplants, a kidney transplant in April 2007 and a pancreas transplant in Oct 2007, after being poorly on home dialysis for a few years. He is also registered visually impaired with severe loss of vision in his left eye with his right eye also poor. His eyesight makes it difficult to see in changes of light, different heights, eg unable to distinguish height between kerbside and road etc, unable to see items on dark on a dark surface and unable to see if flooring is level. He has been trained in the use of a white stick and touch typing, should such a time come that he would be unable to see at all.
As a family we would love his back garden be made safe and comfortable for him to continue with putting his washing out, collecting the items, sitting out in the warmer months with the family and just enjoy the outdoors and back garden.
