A donation from a trust will support elderly visually impaired people in Essex.

People living with sight loss in Essex will benefit from free radios thanks to a grant.

BWBF has been awarded £1,500 by the Fowler Smith & Jones Trust.

The money will be used to provide six blind or partially sighted elderly residents in the county with one of our Concerto 2 multimedia players.

Chairman of the trustees at Fowler Smith & Jones, Philip Tolhurst, said: “We made a previous grant to BWBF to support visually impaired people in Essex and received good feedback, so we wanted to make the Concerto machines available to a wider group.”
