Our newest Patron, Shaun Williamson
"It is a great honour to be a new patron for the BWBF, who have been providing specially designed audio equipment to listeners suffering with sight loss since 1928 and I look forward to raising money and awareness for their cause in the future.
When I was at drama school (back in the middle ages!!) we took part in an exercise where we went out in pairs and took it in turns to try and negotiate the streets of London blindfolded. Even for that brief time and knowing that it was only temporary, it was a terrifying experience. Try it, you’ll see what I mean.
The least we can do is try and provide audible pleasures to the people who have been denied the use of optical ones"
Volunteer runs the extra mile
Our brilliant and very brave volunteer Andy is running the Paris Marathon to raise money for BWBF.
Andy, from Crewe has been volunteering with us a Radio Supporter for three years now. He travels around, installing our specially adapted radios for people with sight loss around Cheshire.
Andy will be running the gruelling 26 miles on 12th April and he has set up a Virgin Money giving page for people to sponsor him. Andy works for Barclays Bank and they have very kindly agreed to match, up to £1,000 any sponsorship money raised.
