Three trusts boost funds

16.06.2016

Three trusts have given donations to BWBF to provide radios to visually impaired people around the country.

Grants have come in to BWBF from three different trusts to provide radios to visually impaired people.

The JJF Charitable Trust has donated £400 to give Concerto 2 sets to those in need in the London area.

In Northamptonshire, The Benham Charitable Settlement has donated £800 to us.

This money is to be used for Concerto 2s as well.

BWBF will also be able to give a Duet 2 to a visually impaired person in need thanks to a grant received from the Pelham Charity Trust.

As British Wireless gets no government funding, we rely on the support from charitable trusts such as these.

BWBF Trusts Officer Frances Fielding said: “Every year we ensure thousands of people stay connected to the world around them.

“Generous donations like this allows us to continue providing blind and partially sighted people with a constant and vital link to the outside world.

"All three organisations have supported us before so we are truly grateful for the on-going help.”
