Trust donation will support Scotland’s visually impaired

16.02.2017

Visually impaired people in Scotland will benefit thanks to a grant British Wireless has received.

The Plum Trust has donated £5,000 to BWBF to provide adapted radios to visually impaired people living in Scotland.

The grant could pay to provide 25 of our Concerto 2 sets to people with sight loss. 

It is the first time the organisation has donated to us.

We are currently supporting around 2,800 blind and partially sighted people in Scotland and from research we have undertaken, estimate there are at least another 790 who we could be supporting but who are not accessing our service.

BWBF Trusts Officer Frances Fielding said: “This a very generous grant and we are absolutely delighted to receive it.

“As we receive no government funding, we rely on donations like this to continue doing our important work.

“This money will make a real difference to people with sight loss throughout Scotland.”
