The lord Mayor of Leeds took part in a blindfold walk to find out how visually impaired people cope.
Lord Mayor Councillor Tom Murray was given the chance to walk through the city assisted by a guide dog.
Garforth and District Lions Club teamed with up Guide Dogs, Action for Blind and Leeds Vision Consortium to highlight Guide Dog Week and World Sight Day.
The Lord Mayor was taken on a guided walk from the Civic Hall to the Town Hall.
He said: “It is good to work with the Lions and their partners in this activity to help raise people’s awareness of the issues faced by those with sight-related issues.”
He added: “Everything seems so much noisier when my vision has been taken away.
“There is a lot of noise in the city centre.”
