Members of the Weymouth and Portland Lions Club, John Braithwaite and Les Board, presented a cheque for the purchase of radios to BWBF Regional Manager David Loveridge.

He said: "I really want to thank members of the Weymouth and Portland Lions who have given up their time to raise money.

"The fund have allowed us to provide blind and partially sighted people in Weymouth and Portland with specially modified radios.

"These unique audio devices allow the recipient to listen to talking books and newspapers, CD, cassettes, digital radio and much more.

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

"We know from feedback from existing recipients of our radio sets that having the loan of a specially adapted radio can make a difference to blind and partially sighted people’s lives by keeping them informed, occupied and entertained.

"The Weymouth and Portland Lions’ generous support means that we’ve been able to provide our service to even more blind and partially sighted people across the local area."
