Féach is a Support Group for Parents of Blind and visually impaired Children

We are organising some social events for children to meet and make friends with other blind and visually impaired children.

Santa Letters in Braille, Audio and Large Print Format


Santa Waving

Every year Santa sends some of his elves to work in NCBI library for a few weeks to help out with a very important job. Children who are blind or vision impaired write to Santa and the NCBI elves help out by replying in Braille, audio or large print. Children will receive a beautiful card with large print and a lovely decoration to be cut out, coloured in and placed on the Christmas tree. A Braille insert will be sent to children who are Braille readers, with a CD for those who prefer to listen to Santa's response, along with an embossed image of the Christmas tree decoration.


Children should send their letters in the post to Santa Claus, NCBI Library and Media Centre, Unit 29 Finglas Business Centre, Jamestown Road, Finglas, Dublin 11 or by email to santa@ncbi.ie by Friday 12th December. (This project is kindly supported by An Post).
