British Wireless for the blind fund – Keeping blind people in touch with the world
April 28th 1990, there was still a Soviet Union. Madonna was at Number 1 with Vogue and Alan Hansen stood roundly on the Anfield turf to hold aloft the Championship trophy.
In that same year British Wireless For The Blind Fund blew out 60 candles on our birthday cake.
30 years on and it looks
like being another year of celebrations for both teams and its supporters.
In 2020 we are reaching more people living with sight loss in the North East of England and the rest of the UK than ever before. We have installed over 3,000 new specially designed Roberts DAB radios for free to those most in need.
A simple donation of £10 pays for pair of Bluetooth headphones or a speaker enabling someone dealing with the isolation sight loss can bring to have the freedom to listen to the world of entertainment, news, music and sport wherever they please.
Someone like Ray. Who has been a beneficiary of ours for over 50 years having had a number of sets. Ray said “I have had over a million hours of listening with your BWBF sets over the last 50 years. I enjoy listening to the radio, it goes on first thing in the morning and is my companion and connection to the world”.
