British Wireless for the Blind Fund (BWBF) is providing the equipment free of charge to those with vision loss across the UK who meet its criteria and has been doing so for 90 years.
BWBF is launching its ‘Reaching Out’ campaign in Lincolnshire to increase awareness of their range of equipment and accompanying support services.
“Our equipment is designed so that a person with sight loss can use them easily and independently. All equipment is delivered to the home by one of our support volunteers who sets it all up and provides help and advice to using it,” Regional development manager Sophie Wheldon said. “We offer a range of devices, digital radios, CD players, internet radio, memory stick player and even a speaking tablet. Easy to use gadgets are vital to someone who cannot see, they provide news, information and entertainment but also, more importantly, companionship and a friendly voice. It’s much more than just a radio.”
If you live in Lincolnshire and you or someone you know is interested in a BWBF radio, contact Sophie at firstname.lastname@example.org
