Two grants will benefit Scotland
BWBF has received two grants from different organisations which will benefit visually impaired people in Scotland.
Visually impaired people in Scotland will benefit from two grants which British Wireless has just received.
The Crerar Trust has donated £3,150 for replacement equipment across the country.
BWBF’s Regional Development Manager for the north, Steven Poole, visited the Oban Bay Hotel in Oban to collect a cheque from General Manager David McGhie.
While we don’t upgrade people’s radios, we will sometimes replace outdated equipment if they have had it for a long time.
We have also received a grant from the Waitrose Community Matters scheme.
Mr Poole was presented with a cheque for £370 from Waitrose Partner Slava Yakupov at the company’s store in Byres Road, Glasgow.
That donation will also be used to replace equipment.
Mr Poole said: “We are so grateful to both The Crerar Trust and Waitrose for these generous grants.
“As a charity which receives no government funding, we rely on donations like this from trusts.
“This money will make a real difference to visually impaired people in Scotland.
“The importance of a radio to someone who has lost their sight cannot be underestimated.”
