Mr Henshaw said: “I am delighted to join the Group Board of NCBI having previously worked with the organisation for a number of years. My past experiences interacting with NCBI helped me get an insight into the incredible work the organisation does across Ireland for the sight loss community. Now by joining their Board, I can contribute and learn even more and collaborate with my fellow Board members in progressing NCBI’s many exciting opportunities available now and into the future.”

Chris White, NCBI CEO added: “Robbie will be a huge asset to NCBI going forward and his knowledge, insight and profile will help us to further enhance the reputation of NCBI as Ireland’s leading sight loss agency who are here to help children and adults who are blind or vision impaired. Having worked with Robbie in the past on various NCBI projects, I can attest to his passion for the things that we do and we look forward to bringing that energy into the organisation.”
