Loppylugs trust donation could provide more than 40 radios

19.12.2016

British Wireless has received a generous donation which could provide more than 40 people with specially adapted radios.

A trust which has supported British Wireless several times in the past has given us another generous donation.

The Loppylugs and Barbara Morrison Charitable Trust has awarded BWBF a grant of £7,500.

It will be used to provide our specially adapted radios to the visually impaired across the UK and could support as many as 41 people living with sight loss.

The organisation was created by the will of the late Barbara Morrison, who lived in Worcestershire, and had come up with the idea with her husband Archibald John Morrison, who was known as Loppylugs.

BWBF’s Trusts Officer Frances Fielding said: “This is a wonderful donation and we are very grateful.

“I’d like to say a big thank you to The Loppylugs and Barbara Morrison Charitable Trust.

“We rely on grants such as these be able to continue providing our vital support to people with sight loss across the UK.”
