Cornwall Blind Association has recently appointed a new chairman, Lance Kennedy, who will provide his expertise in steering the organisation into the future.
He will be taking over from Neil Sargent, the organisation’s former chair of two years, who formally announced he would be stepping down at CBA’s recent AGM.
Cornwall Blind Association (CBA) is the oldest charity in Cornwall and the only local charity which exists to transform the lives of the visually impaired.
Mr Kennedy said: “It is an honour to be elected to the voluntary position of chairman of the oldest charity in Cornwall; their work has been invaluable but too often unrecognised, I look forward to working with trustees, staff and clients to raise awareness and increase our services to both the sight impaired in Cornwall and their families.”
Lance Kennedy has enjoyed many years of public service and service to the community. From 1969 until 1997 he served as a police officer with Devon and Cornwall Police.
