A Walsoken woman who is registered blind, has spoken of how Facebook is a life-line for her to feel part of the community as she launches her latest fund raising event..
Jade Farm, 27, is running a raffle to raise funds for Ravenswood Pet Rescue having held previously successful fund raising missions.
The raffle prize is a hand built dog feeding station.
Jade has Aniridia, a condition which means she has no iris, so she has vastly limited vision and no protection from daylight.
Her mum is her full time carer. Jade says since joining Facebook two years ago, being able to connect with people locally gives her a positive sense of purpose.
Jade said: “Facebook means I can be in touch with other people locally, it makes such a difference.”
Animal lover Jade chose to raise money for Ravenswood as her pugs Monster, Tilly and Walter are so important in her life.
Her mum Leeza Morgan said: “I watch Jade laughing and chattering away online with people. It has been such a positive thing for her.
“I hope the raffle raises lots of money for such a good cause.”
• Tickets for the handmade dog bed, made by Everything Home Made at King’s Lynn, are £2 each, paying via Paypal. The raffle will be drawn on December 23. Contact Jade via her Facebook page.
