British Wireless for the Blind Fund has been awarded £2,000 by the People’s Postcode Trust.

The organisation is a grant-giving charity, funded entirely by players of the People's Postcode Lottery. 

We will use the money to purchase specially modified audio sets for the blind and find volunteers to deliver, install and demonstrate these specially modified sets.

People’s Postcode Lottery is Britain’s charity lottery. Players play with their postcodes to win cash prizes while raising money for good causes. 

As a charity lottery, £2 from every monthly lottery ticket goes towards charity and community initiatives across England, Scotland and Wales, including People’s Postcode Trust. 

People’s Postcode Lottery believes in supporting local communities so the money raised by players in each county, stays in that county.
