Generous Medway motorists have helped raise funds to support visually impaired people in the area.

British Wireless will be able to support more people with sight loss in Medway thanks to a generous grant.

The Moto service station on the M2, between junction four and five, has given the charity a £2,000 grant from its Moto in the Community Trust.

It will be used to give at least 11 visually impaired Medway residents one of our radios.

BWBF’s Regional Development Manager for the South East, Simon Parsons, said: “We are already supporting around 500 people in Kent and this grant will enable us to help even more, specifically in the Medway area.

“We are so grateful to Moto and to all the motorists whose generous donations allow the company to give out these much needed grants.

“Often people with a sight condition can feel quite isolated but our sets become companions which also provide them with news, information and entertainment.”

The service station’s General Manager, Chris Osajda, said: “We are always looking to support local charities so we wanted to help British Wireless.

“We believe it’s a really good cause and will be looking to support it going forward as well.”

Mr Osajda handed the cheque over to Mr Parsons on Monday, October 10th.
