Waterloo Tea bags Sight Life photos

11 January 2023

Photographs taken by members of Sight Life’s photography group are on display in Waterloo Tea, Wyndham Arcade, Cardiff (Wyndham Arcade – Waterloo Tea).

The images include people, wildlife, scenery and Cardiff landmarks as well as water droplets caught in the moment before they vanish.


The Exhibition starts on 5th January 2023 and will run for 2 months.

The Pictures are available for sale to the public and all profits from the sale will be donated to Sight Life.

All members of the volunteer led group are sight impaired. This latest showing of their work follows recent exhibitions in Cardiff libraries, hubs and Coffi Vista in Caerphilly.

People who have seen the previous shows have said that “The exhibition shows that people who cannot necessarily see very well, can still have a fun life doing what they enjoy.”

The group have chosen a sample of their work to exhibit, and they hope the public find them inspirational and enjoy a lovely cup of coffee or tea at Waterloo Tea at the same time.

The photography group are grateful to Waterloo Tea for their support and to Oner Signs in Cardiff for their assistance with printing quality photographs.


The photographers are just one of many Sight Life clubs and activities which show that sight loss needn’t stop you pursuing your interests. It’s free to join most of our activities. To find out more call 029 2039 8900 or email [email protected]

About Sight Life 

Sight Life (formerly Cardiff Institute for the Blind) supports people who are blind or partially sighted in south Wales. In 2020/21 we helped more than 3,000 people in Cardiff, Swansea, RCT (Rhondda Cynon Taf), Neath and Port Talbot. 

We provide statutory services to people with sight loss on behalf of the local Councils in Cardiff and Swansea. 

In cooperation with the NHS, we provide a support service (ECLO: Eye Clinic Liaison Officer) for patients newly diagnosed with sight loss in University Hospital of Wales (UHW “The Heath”) in Cardiff. 

Our aims are to ensure that people with sight loss can take part in all aspects of society, including work and leisure. 

We offer a range of training, clubs and activities including audio-described theatre trips, confidence building, cooking, drama, employment support, fitness, gardening, IT, music, photography, rambling and yoga to people with sight loss. 

Established in 1865, we are one of Wales’ oldest charities. In spring 2022 we returned to being an independent charity after being part of the UK wide RNIB Group since 2009. 

We have approximately a dozen staff and annual income in the region of £440,000 from statutory contracts, grants, trusts, The National Lottery, donations and legacies. 

Sight Life changed its name from Cardiff Institute for the Blind in 2019 to reflect the fact that we work beyond Cardiff, including Swansea and RCT (Rhondda Cynon Taf). The name change also recognises the fact that we support people with any degree of sight loss, not only those who are blind.
