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.
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.
For those who want to get more involved with our work, the article on the back page is especially for you. If you are able to spare a couple of hours during our two annual public collection days in April and May 2015, we would love to hear from you. You don’t need any experience, just bundles of enthusiasm!
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.
