1st May 2019, the National Council for the Blind Ireland (NCBI) is delighted to celebrate the further expansion of its retail shops with the official opening of its store in Rathmines, Co. Dublin with the help of NCBI ambassador and Ireland and Leinster rugby player Robbie Henshaw.

NCBI is proud to have 100 shops across the country and continues to be the second largest charity shop chain in the country. NCBI’s chain of shops play a vital and integral part in the charity’s overall fundraising efforts, allowing the national sight loss agency to provide vital life changing services to over 8,000 people each year.

Robbie Henshaw, NCBI Ambassador said “I’m always happy to support the NCBI as its work empowers and transforms the lives of those living with sight loss. I’ve seen first-hand the difference that NCBI makes in supporting and enabling people to live independently and confidently.”

Chris White, NCBI CEO said “we are delighted to have a store in Rathmines given it is such a vibrant and bustling area and hope the NCBI store will become a cornerstone of the community as it has in so many other communities across the country. We are heartened to see the ongoing growth of our stores which in turn enable us to offer a suite of services to those who are visually impaired.  All our shops will continue to play a key role in our fundraising efforts especially as demand for NCBI services will grow.”
