A Royal thank you to Association of Blind Asians

Association of Blind Asians (ABA) has been named as one of just forty recipients of a prestigious community initiative award.

The Duke of York’s Community Initiative is presented annually to a small number of Yorkshire based organisations that, having been subjected to rigorous and robust scrutiny, are deemed: “of real value to the community, well run and an inspiration to others.”

ABA was founded in 1989 to provide support services to visually impaired people in Leeds. ABA provides a range of services and also helps potentially isolated people to connect with other service providers in Leeds.

The Initiative, which was founded by His Royal Highness The Duke of York in 1998, exists to both encourage and reward innovative and inspirational community projects in Yorkshire and the Humber, and later this month representatives of ABA will travel to Bridlington Spa’s Royal Hall to attend a luncheon at which His Royal Highness will personally present recipients of the 2013 awards with their citations.
