British Wireless launches 2016 Christmas appeal

01.11.2016

Today British Wireless is launching its 2016 Christmas appeal, with a focus on the friendship and comfort our radios provide to those with sight loss.

BWBF’s Christmas appeal is an important way for us to raise money so we can continue to provide the service we do to visually impaired people.

Our 2016 campaign features John Baines and his wife Janet who have one of our Sonata Plus+ internet players.

The focus of the appeal is on the friendship and comfort our sets can bring to blind and partially sighted people and how they make a real difference to them.

The couple, who both have retinitis pigmentosa, are completely blind and so their British Wireless set is very important to them and a big part of their lives.

You can read their story, and donate to our appeal, by clicking on our donate page.
