Four Sonata plus+ sets for Berkshire

24.06.2015

International charity Gyan Netra supports BWBF.

A new international charity set up to help relieve and prevent the poverty of blind people has supported British Wireless for the Blind Fund.

Gyan Netra has been formed to help other charities which work with blind and visually impaired people.

We are delighted it has agreed to provide funding so four people with sight loss living in Berkshire can be given one of our new Sonata plus+ internet audio players.

Mr Tanna, trustee of the charity, came to our Maidstone office to see the Sonata being put through its paces by our IT Manager John Mills.

He was very favourably impressed by the capabilities of the set and said he was very happy that his charity was supporting the provision of this unique piece of equipment with its ground-breaking technology.
