Valli Opticians managing director appointed charity vice chair

Moin Valli has been named vice chair of the Kirklees Visual Impairment Network

The managing director of an optical group of 14 practices around Huddersfield has been appointed vice chair of a local visual impairment charity.

Moin Valli (pictured), owner of Valli Opticians, takes up the position at Kirklees Visual Impairment Network (KVIN).

The charity provides peer support to help people with visual impairment learn how to use technology such as Amazon Alexa, Google Home and other apps for phone and tablet devices.

Speaking about the appointment, Mr Valli, who joined the board of the charity three years ago, said: “If you have a visual impairment there are certain technologies that can really enhance your life and I think it’s fantastic that KVIN is helping to teach people how to use them.”

Mr Valli said that through his role as vice chair of KVIN he will support the charity to develop and implement a five-year business and marketing plan to support the opening of more drop-in clinics so that more people can benefit for the services locally.

In October this year, Valli Opticians raised £6000 for KVIN through a sponsored walk with more than 100 people called the Valli Rally.
