One of our supporters has asked for donations to BWBF instead of presents for her 90th birthday.

A British Wireless for the Blind Fund recipient who turned 90 raised money for us instead of having gifts.

Hannah Grant celebrated the landmark birthday in January.

She kindly asked for her friends and family to donate to us instead of having gifts.

In total, £180 was sent in.

This will enable us to give one of our most popular sets, a Concerto, to someone in need.

Thank you so much Hannah and many happy returns.
