BWBF would like to say thank you to The Harborne Parish Council Lands Charity which has recently provided a grant to help pay for volunteer costs within the parish of Harborne.

Regional Development Manager for Birmingham, Sophie Jones, said: “This grant is hugely useful as it means the travel expenses of our two volunteers will be covered for the next year, meaning the service we provide to blind and partially sighted people in Harborne will be uninterrupted.”

BWBF volunteers deliver our specially adapted radios to blind people’s homes.

They set them up and provide one-to-one instruction, ensuring that the blind person will go on to use the radio fully and independently, allowing them to access radio, CDs, tapes, audiobooks, talking newspapers and much more.
