Thursday 8th October 2015 saw Jersey Blind Society re-brand to EYECAN.
The change comes after 12 months work to bring clarity to what we do and a better understanding of who we support.
In doing so, we hope to make a positive difference by reaching out, engaging with and promoting independence to all Islanders living with sight impairment.
Our new image is confident, inclusive, empowering and relevant.
We have created a new name, a statement. A new logo incorporating new colours of the society all while maintaining our heritage by using an eye.
Our new image is now all about the people we enable, empower and support to maintain their independence.
EYECAN is the start of something new. Something brilliant!
This week marked the 100th birthday of one of our Day Centre regulars Idrys Buesnel.
Idrys has been coming to the Society for many years and has always enjoyed the activities and entertainment provided.
President, Conrad Coutanche, presented Idrys with some flowers and lead Happy Birthday wishes.
A fantastic achievement to reach 100 years old and we were so pleased to be part of it.
We are delighted to announce that aMaizin! Adventure Park have chosen EYECAN to be their charity of the year!
We are overjoyed to be named partner charity and look forward to working closely with aMaizin! Adventure Park through-out the year
“My sister was born with severe sight and hearing issues and benefited from this charity, so it is great to be able to give something back decades later. A disabled child in the family can have an impact on all family members in so many ways, so we hope to support the immediate family as well during our year with the [Jersey] Blind Society.” – Kristina Le Feuvre – Owner and Director of aMaizin! Adventure Park.
