GLFB’s Supporter Update – Read It Now!

It’s been another huge few months for the GLFB and our local member charities.

The latest issue of the Supporter Update illustrates how your donations are enabling the GLFB to empower teens like Allan who has been partially sighted from a young age.

Sight loss can happen to anyone at any time, and we want to ensure that we are able to be there to provide vital assistance when needed.

With the number of people in the UK with a visual impairment expected to increase to 2.25 million over the next four years, the need for donations to help fund our work is ever increasing.

Please consider sending a gift today so that we are able to reach more people like Allan in need of specialist support. Our warmest thanks in advance for any contribution you are able to make.

If you would like to know more about the impact of your donations in the local community, please contact us.

Your support matters

Every donation the GLFB receives means another blind or partially sighted person has an increased chance of a better quality of life.

It is because of the on-going support from GLFB friends like you that we are able to be there for over 50,000 people every year at school, at home and at work.

GLFB Newsletter Autumn 2015

We are delighted to share with you some of the recent success stories made possible thanks to the generosity of our supporters. The latest edition of the supporter newsletter, Insight, provides a snapshot of what an incredible difference your donations are helping make.

Last year, we distributed over £1.45 million to our member charities who in turn were able to increase the level of support they provide at the local level.

The funds are used for a range of vital blind welfare services including specialist education for infants, employment training for working age adults, lunch clubs for isolated older people and confidence-boosting theatre workshops for visually impaired teenagers.

Please take a moment to read the latest update on how your donations are making a direct, positive and lasting difference – every day. 

The newsletter has been written very much with you – our supporter – in mind. It’s our way to not only keep you up to date on how we spend your contributions but to also say thank you for helping us unlock the potential of blind and partially sighted people.

If you would like to receive a copy of the Insight newsletter through the post please get in touch with our fundraising team.

Your support matters – please continue to think of us when considering your next charity donation.

Thank you.
