Thank you!

We love to hear your feedback at VICTA. Here are a few of the messages of thanks we have received from grant recipients, participants, volunteers and fundraisers.

“The course allowed for me to discover my own style of photo and how to make my photos look beautiful, even if they were different. Thank you so much!”

“I would like to thank you again for this activity. My daughter absolutely loved every minute of it and it has done wonders to her confidence, communications and general understanding. She communicates on the group chat and is looking forward to many more activities that VICTA supports.”

“The team work fantastically as a unit and were always there to advise and assist when necessary. My computer was ordered in no time and received in the same week. They are very dedicated to their work in helping people with visual impairments and are the most helpful charity I have come across to date. It can feel like a very lonely place when you are registered blind and to know there is equipment which could make such a difference but feels out of reach. VICTA have restored my faith in human nature and the goodwill of people toward those who need a helping hand and I will always be grateful for their help.”

“I just wanted to thank you for funding my first activity break for vision impaired children. I got back on Friday after spending four days at Braeside. I had so much fun, my favourite things were learning how to light a fire in the woods, cooking our lunch, going swimming and the high ropes. The best thing was that I made new friends and now I’m home we are all texting each other.”

“My iPad has now arrived and I’ve set it up and am using it. I just wanted to say a really big thank you to the trustees and team at VICTA. Although my sight deteriorating at this age was not what I would wish for or have expected, being able to apply for this grant and receive the support that you have given goes a long way to boosting my independence and quality of life.”

“A huge thank you from us for such an amazing weekend, we can’t remember the last time we felt so relaxed and it was wonderful to meet other families. Our daughter loved the activities and came away so much happier with herself and more confident on her feet. Being born with half a heart and sight impairment means that she often hears people saying she can’t or won’t achieve things and she’s had a particularly tough time starting school. The weekend gave her the perfect break.”
