History of Andover VIPs

Andover VIPs was formed in 1992, by a group of visually impaired people and assisted by sighted volunteers. The main purpose of the club was to provide activities to include educational, recreational, craft and sports. In the year 2000, the club acquired charity status in order to obtain funding efficiently for the needs of the members.

The services we provide are available to 400 visually impaired people of Andover and the surrounding villages. We now have a membership of almost 70 people and this is growing annually.

Who manages the Andover VIPs?

The charity is managed by a group of trustees, some of whom are visually impaired, along with one part-time Secretary.
