Danny Howard is a British actor, best known for his roles in gangster films.
He was in an accident at school when he was seven-years-old and lost the sight in his right eye from a willow tree branch, although he says he has never let it bother him.
Danny says he is delighted to come onboard with us as a patron and didn’t have to think twice about taking on the role.
He said: “I am very proud and honoured to become a patron of British Wireless for the Blind Fund.
“It’s a superb charity which supplies audio equipment for listeners suffering with sight loss.
“I’m very much looking forward to raising money for BWBF by completing various events in the future.”

British Wireless for the Blind Fund has been providing radios and audio equipment to visually impaired people for almost 90 years. Thanks to a grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund in 2012, we have been able to fully research and bring together our history from 1929, when the first 100 crystal radio sets were issued, to the present day.
British Wireless for the Blind Fund was set up in 1928 by Sir Ernest Beachcroft Beckwith Towse VC, KCVO, CBE, a blinded Boer War veteran. After serving in the First World War as a staff officer working with the wounded in hospitals in France, he turned his energies to the service of the blind community.
British Wireless has signed up to the new Fundraising Regulator and agrees to abide by its rules and regulations.
