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.
