Dining in the Dark

The staff from professional of­fice space provider Sitting Rooms and car finance specialists, easifleet, recently embraced the challenge of dining together blindfolded.
The staff from all the business located in the easifleet building, in Victo­ria Park, banded to­gether to host a lunch with a twist for Guide Dogs WA.
While the team’s target was to raise $300, the diners man­aged to triple their goal amount and raised more than $800.

Sitting Rooms managing di­rector Michael McLeod said he wanted his co-workers to join forces and light up the lives of those with vision impairment in WA.
“We think it is an excellent idea to raise awareness for Guide Dogs WA and it offered a unique social experience for our team to engage in,” he said.
“Due to the uniqueness of the event, people seemed open to donating and participating.”

All participants were en­couraged to donate the normal cost of a dining experience to Guide Dogs WA.
While the event was positive­ly received by participants, the simple act of eating proved to be a great challenge.
“Finding food on the plate was incredibly difficult,” Mr McLeod said.
“It was then equally hard to find my mouth once I had man­aged to get food on the other end of the fork.”
