"At RNIB we feel passionately that reading can change the lives of blind and partially sighted people.

A teenager who robbed two people at a Peterborough skatepark has been jailed for six years.
Bubacar Embalo, 19, from Manchester threatened his victims at knifepoint, making them hand over their mobile phones when they refused to buy drugs from him. After succeeding in his first crime, he attempted to rob two other people but they managed to run off.
He denied charges of robbery and attempted robbery at Peterborough Crown Court, but after hearing all the evidence, the jury unanimously found him guilty of all five charges.
"Thankfully no one was injured in these very serious incidents, but this was a truly terrifying ordeal for the victims who feared for their life. This result should send out a clear message that knife crime and robberies will not be tolerated and we will do all that we can to prosecute those who think this type of behaviour is acceptable in our county."

When the burglar was challenged he became violent and hit the man in the face with the box, leaving him with cuts and bruising.
Detective Constable Sarah Phillips said:
"The victim in this incident was particularly vulnerable and resides in a vulnerable location. He suffered a nasty assault and has been left shaken. I would urge anyone who knows this individual to contact police."
