Cardwave increases donation to Wiltshire Sight with 500 USBs

20th July 2016

Devizes-based charity Wiltshire Sight has today benefited from a donation of 500 4GB USBs from Cardwave to enable the charity to provide more clients with audio content via USB.

Emma Charlton, Cardwave’s Marketing & Communications Manager commented: “During a recent visit with Peter Rowe to present his June charity donation, we noticed that the charity offered an audio service via USB to its clients. We had excess stock of USBs, so what better way of making use of them than to offer them to Wiltshire Sight. We hope that they can now reach even more clients with their valuable services”.

Leanne Hubbard, Chief Executive of Wiltshire Sight commented: “We were delighted with Cardwave’s monthly donation towards our services, but then to get another donation of 500 memory sticks was a welcome bonus. The USB sticks will go towards growing our newsletter and audio library services, which are both fantastic resources for our clients. We are very pleased to be developing corporate relationships in the community with organisations such as Cardwave.”

Wiltshire Sight is an independent charity supporting people living with sight loss in Wiltshire and Swindon. They assist more than 2,500 people of all ages, as well as their families and carers.

Wiltshire Sight offer information, advice and guidance, as well as giving people practical and emotional support to help them in their daily lives. They have a fully equipped resource centre at St Lucy’s in Devizes, offering state-of-the-art assisted technology products and low vision aids.

The charity do not charge for their services and receive no statutory funding, so any donations and support to enable them to continue to support the growing number of people with sight loss in Wiltshire are very much appreciated.
