Enjoy blind wine tasting of 6 wines, together with delicious canapes.

Stand a chance to win paintings by Nick Steere, tickets to the RMB Starlight Classics with a picnic hamper or an assortment of lovely wines.

Who is SAMBT?

I am sure you know something about the connection between blind people and the white cane. Did you know though that, to use this simple device to get yourself about safely and effectively, you need very specialised training. We provide that training. More than that though, we take it to blind people in rural and township places across the country.  These are people who would otherwise not be able to get this life changing opportunity at all. Here is a video of one of our clients called Alfred.
