RIDBC Hunter Sight and Sound for Kids Committee

RIDBC Hunter Sight and Sound for Kids Committee, established in 2011, is a unique corporate group formed to raise awareness of RIDBC and build strong corporate relationships in the Newcastle and Hunter Regions.

As a charity, it is only with the backing of the community and our committees, volunteers and partner organisations, that we can continue providing services to local children with vision or hearing loss.

Now in its 4th year, RIDBC have had some amazing speakers at the Sight & Sound for Kids Corporate Lunch and in 2015 we were fortunate to have Ben Felten speak about his attempt to break the GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS™ title for the fastest speed for a motorcycle ridden blindfolded.

The Sight & Sound for Kids Corporate Lunch attracts some of the Hunter’s most prestigious business people and was a huge success raising a record $50,080 for RIDBC. This year the aim was to raise funds for five new in-home systems to access RIDBC Teleschool, which was achieved, with the units delivered to deserving families in early 2016.
