Grant from Ryedale Lions provides Concerto 2s.


We would like to say a huge thank you to the members of Ryedale Lions.


A recent grant from the Ryedale Lions has allowed us to provide three blind people in Ryedale with a specially adapted Concerto 2.

The Concerto 2 is our most popular set and it allows the recipient to listen to talking books and newspapers, CD, cassettes, digital radio and much more.

It is designed so that it is easier to use for those with sight loss, meaning independent use on a daily basis.

The Ryedale Lions’ generous support means that we’ve been able to provide our service to even more blind and partially sighted people in the UK.
