International White Cane Day


International White Cane Day,

Sunday 15 October

This Sunday is International White Cane Day, which is being promoted by the Association of Blind Citizens NZ (ABC NZ).

The white cane is seen as an international symbol of mobility and independence for the blind as it allows them to ‘walk with confidence’.

Christchurch City Council has a Disability Reference Group and its responsibilities include promoting public awareness about disability issues in the community.
