Link Vision is proud to announce that two of its own will be representing Australia at the World Blind Bowling Championship in Tweed this coming March. Vanessa Hinton and Helen Boardman have been selected for the Australian team of 5.

Vanessa, a long-term resident of Link Vision, has been a champion bowler for many years. She is determined to make her country proud and is thrilled to be representing Australia at the World Championships. 

Helen, a carer for the residents of Link Vision, is a true inspiration. Despite being blind herself, Helen has not let her disability hold her back and was even nominated for the Blind Australian of the Year award last year.

However, for both Vanessa and Helen, participating in the World Championships comes at a cost, with each required to raise $2,000 to fund their participation. Recognising the immense talent and dedication of these two women, Link Vision has decided to sponsor both Vanessa and Helen.

The CEO of Link Vision, Terry O’Neill said, 

“We are happy for people to donate anything via our website and we will pass it on to the ladies. I really want to publicise the event, their involvement, and raise some money for a fantastic cause”

As the tournament approaches, the two women are training hard and are determined to make their country proud. They are confident that with the support of Link Vision and the generosity of the public, they have a fighting chance of bringing home a trophy.

Both Vanessa and Helen are not just representing themselves but also Link Vision and Australia, as they prove that with determination, hard work, and a little help, anything is possible.

We at Link Vision wish them all the best and encourage the public to support these two amazing women by donating via our website.
