British Wireless has received a grant to help people with sight loss living in Glasgow.

Visually impaired people living in Glasgow will benefit thanks to a £500 grant received from The Gardner’s Trust for the Blind.

Income from the trust is used to give educational and other grants, and pensions, to blind persons of all ages. The trust has also founded scholarships at various colleges, schools and institutions for the blind.

Steven Poole, Regional Development Manager for British Wireless said; “We are extremely grateful to the trust for giving us this grant. It will enable us to give 10 visually impaired people access to our new Bumblebee app which has been specially designed and developed in-house to give visually impaired listeners simple, portable access to a huge range of internet audio content.”

“We don’t receive any government funding and rely on donations such as this to continue providing our service.”
