At Blind Veterans UK, we take our cakes very seriously.
On 21st February 2013, we had a special event at our centre in Sheffield to commemorate one year of being 'Blind Veterans UK'. This was a monumental brand change from our previous identity of 'St Dunstan's'. During the event, sucsesses of the charity over the year were celebrated - including the launch of our new No One Alone campaign.
This event also had some special guests in attendance, Officers from the 521 Explosives Ordnance Disposal Squadron and their bomb disposal robot called Wheelbarrow. Wheelbarrow had the important task of cutting slices of the two-foot wide Blind Veterans UK cake!
