Din­ing ex­pe­ri­ence a blin­der

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - News -

DID you know it takes more than $35,000 to train one guide dog?

Vic­to­ria Park’s Guide Dogs WA launched its an­nual fundrais­ing cam­paign with a twist: guests had to make sushi blind­folded.

The cam­paign, Din­ing in the Dark, asks the com­mu­nity to host a din­ner with friends in the dark or blind­folded.

Din­ing in the Dark helps raise funds for peo­ple with vi­sion im­pair­ment, as par­tic­i­pants are asked to do­nate to Guide Dogs WA what they would usu­ally spend on a night out.

Pho­tog­ra­pher Jar­rad Seng hosted his own blind­folded ex­pe­ri­ence with his in­dus­try col­leagues.

“As a pho­tog­ra­pher, I to­tally rely on my sight to be able to cap­ture and share the world around me,” he said,

“I can't imag­ine the dif­fi­cul­ties faced by peo­ple with a vi­sion im­pair­ment in pur­su­ing their pas­sions, "
