Audazzle Ltd. is a start-up founded in 2014 by Selwyn and Marie Lloyd, the parents of Daisy, a girl who lost her eyes to cancer at the age of two. Daisy soon lost her confidence and self-esteem as she was left out of games at school, in the playground and even at home. However, Audazzle is not only about the Visually Impaired. More than 10% of the UK population suffers from varying degrees of social isolation. Lowering that percentage is their ultimate quest and “The Mist of Audazzle” is their weapon.
