Funds boosted by trusts in June

11.07.2016

Several trusts have given grants to BWBF during June.

Visually impaired people across the country will benefit from a number of grants BWBF received throughout June.

The Sir Jules Thorn Trust has given us £1,000 from its Ann Rylands Small Donations Programme.

It will be used to provide our specially adapted sets to people with sight loss across the country.

We have also benefitted from a £1,100 grant thanks to the Walter Craig Charitable Trust.

That donation will be used to provide our Concerto 2 radios to blind and partially sighted people living in the Fife area of Scotland.

A generous grant of £2,850 has also come in from the Chalk Cliff Trust, which will enable us to provide 15 sets to visually impaired people in East Sussex.

It is the sixth time the Chalk Cliff Trust has supported us.

People with sight loss in Nottingham will benefit from adapted sets thanks to a £500 grant we have received from The Jessie Spencer Trust – the seventh time it has supported our cause.

Visually impaired residents in Scotland will also be supported with a £500 donation from the Kenrob Charitable Trust.

Trust Officer Frances Fielding said: “We are delighted to have received these grants throughout June.

“As a small charity, we rely on generous donations such as these to continue providing our vital support to people with sight loss who need us.

“We’d like to say a big thank you to these trusts, and all our supporters, for their continued help.”
