Sightline Telephone Befriending is celebrating after being awarded a grant from the Duchy of Lancaster’s Benevolent Fund.
This invaluable funding will help Sightline to continue to provide the service which was launched back in August 2018.
Since the launch, Sightline has helped more than 250 visually impaired people supported by a team of wonderful volunteers, many of whom are also visually impaired.
Ian Edwards, charity director at Sightline says: “Sightline was absolutely delighted to have recently received a grant from the Duchy of Lancaster Benevolent Fund to help promote its telephone befriending service for visually impaired people."
Ian adds: “Historically, Sightline has been funded by the National Lottery, but over the last 18 months more funders have seen the positive impact Sightline’s Telephone Befriending Service can have for visually impaired people, and the Duchy is the latest in this growing list of supporters.”
