Essex visually impaired to benefit from grant

A donation from a trust will support elderly visually impaired people in Essex.

People living with sight loss in Essex will benefit from free radios thanks to a grant.

BWBF has been awarded £1,500 by the Fowler Smith & Jones Trust.

The money will be used to provide six blind or partially sighted elderly residents in the county with one of our Concerto 2 multimedia players.

Chairman of the trustees at Fowler Smith & Jones, Philip Tolhurst, said: “We made a previous grant to BWBF to support visually impaired people in Essex and received good feedback, so we wanted to make the Concerto machines available to a wider group.”

BWBF’s Trusts Officer, Frances Fielding, said: “We would like to say a big thank you to the Fowler Smith & Jones Trust.

“We are very grateful for this generous donations which will make a real difference with in helping our on-going work in Essex.”
