It is with great sadness that Sight Support Hull & East Yorkshire announces the passing of our colleague Andy Brown (pictured above).

As SocialEYES Coordinator at the charity, Andy was responsible for the development and running of our leisure and activity programme which not only offered leisure activities and experiences for people with visual impairments, but lead to the development of support networks and friendships, the impact of which spread way beyond the activities themselves.

The success of the programme was in no small way due to Andy’s enthusiasm, warm personality and sense of humour and as a respected and much loved member of our Sight Support family, his unexpected passing is deeply felt by staff, volunteers and service users alike.

Our thoughts, deepest condolences and love go to his partner Mandy, his family and his friends at this extremely sad and difficult time.
