A flash book sale is taking place at Oakham's Vista this week.

Vista is one of the oldest and largest local charities in Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland. The team have been working with people with sight loss and their families for over 160 years, providing specialist services for people with learning disabilities and dementia on top of supporting eye health and those with sight loss.

Their aim is to:

  1. Promote eye health to prevent avoidable sight loss
  2. Reduce the impact of sight loss
  3. Provide support and care for people affected by sight loss

The charity is there at the point of diagnosis, supporting children and adults in eye clinics by providing information, advice, guidance and support when it's most needed.

They teach people with sight loss new skills and provide specialist equipment and tools, as well as supporting children and adults with sight loss, providing specialist leisure activities, creative and expressive music sessions and professional rehabilitation support in both the home and the community.

They also provide over 70,000 talking newspapers a year, making a real difference to the lives of socially isolated people in Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland.

To support this ongoing work, the charity runs local books shops with the support of local volunteers.

The Oakham branch of Vista will be open from tomorrow, 16 April 2024, hosting a big flash sale of all crime fiction titles.

All crime fiction books will be three for a £1, so you can pop down and pick up a bargain from 10am.
