This last month has been an exciting and busy one here at Thomas Pocklington Trust! We have moved into our new head office – The Pocklington Hub – at Tavistock House in London.

We packed up our temporary office at CAN Mezzanine, which graciously housed us since a fire broke out at Pier House, our previous central office in London, in February and moved into the Pocklington Hub last month.

We are very happy to have our new permanent home and look forward to sharing this wonderful space with everyone in the Eye Health and Sight Loss sector.

The Hub has ample meeting room space available for booking and hot desks people can use. Everyone in the sector is welcome – we hope it will be a helpful space and a hub for collaborative work.

Anyone interested in booking a meeting room can email hub@pocklington-trust.org.uk or phone 020 7376 7766.

We are also working on a navigation system with guides at train stations to help people make their way to the office – keep an eye out on the website for more information.

Thank you to everyone for your support while we were semi-homeless.

On another note, I’m very pleased to announce that I, along with TPT trustee Jenny Pearce, have been re-elected to VISION 2020 UK’s Board of Trustees. I look forward to continuing to work with VISION 2020 UK and all of the organisations involved to help improve eye health in the UK.
