New Premises

The Society has now moved to 53, St. Luke's Terrace, Pallion, Sunderland SR4 6NF. The telephone number remains the same as before - 0191 567 3939.

The New office provides the Society with excellent facilities all on the ground floor, so no more steps to climb to enter the building as in Foyle Street. The building includes two large large meeting rooms so all future Sunderland Coffee Mornings and Macular Support Group meetings will be held at Pallion. One room is large enough to hold exhibitions and seminars. There are toilet facilities including a seperate disabled toilet and a room we hope to open as a Cafe in the future.

Buses to Pallion include the numbers 10,11 and 18. Pallion Metro station is about a 10 minute walk away.
