Visibility... our favourite Charity

 are the leading sight loss charity in the west of Scotland, delivering a range of information, support and services to over 3,000 people with a visual impairment, and their families and carers, each year.  David Cant, MD and founder of Albion made the decision to support Visibility as his late father was the eminent eye surgeon, Stanley Cant who practised in Glasgow. Were he still alive today, Stanley would no longer be practising, however he would see the value in the excellent and much needed work provided by Visibility and would do all that he could to support the charity. David is doing this in memory of his father.

Eulogy: Written and read by David Cant at the funeral of Geoff Shelton

Geoff Shelton. So many things to so many people. Friend, uncle, brother, husband to his beloved Anne, colleague, comrade at arms, neighbour. And a vibrant storyteller. And a true gentleman.

I was privileged to know Geoff in his later years, and in those years he became a very dear friend. I can’t do him justice in just a few minutes, but let me try. You all have your own memories of Geoff...
