John Mills House - GLFB's London office – received a surprise visit from one of our new supporters, John Griffin, who popped in to meet the staff and to personally deliver a cheque for £50k!Mr Griffin and our CEO in GLFB London office
Mr Griffin spoke passionately of his reasons for supporting the charity and before heading off to his next engagement, re-affirmed his commitment to helping London's blind and partially sighted people:
"From now on I will champion your cause and shout it out from the rooftops....I can think of nothing worse than losing one's sight ... and in my position I am so pleased to be able to give something back."
Cass Edwards, Chief Executive of GLFB said: "John's support of the charity at the LondonlovesExcellence Awards Dinner in June was first rate. His presentation of this very generous donation today is quite simply wonderful. It will go a long way towards making a difference to the lives of the 50,000 blind and partially sighted people we work with."
We would like to express our deepest thanks to Mr Griffin for his significant contribution in aid of London's blind.
