2014 Project Gemini

Project Gemini 2014 runs from the 17th to the 25th of May 2014. Our friends from the US Blinded Veterans Association and a small contingent from St Dunstans South Africa come to the UK for a weeklong visit. The week includes a trip in an amphibious vehicle known as a ‘Duck’ in London, a visit to the Royal Artillery Firepower museum, dinner and drinks at the Union Jack Club. The trip also includes visits to Hever Castle, Brighton Sea Life Centre, Brighton Pavilion and many social evenings.
