A Devon charity promoting the wellbeing of people experiencing loss of sight has received a cash injection from a leading housebuilder in the region.
Devon in Sight has been handed £1,000 from Persimmon Homes South West’s Community Champions fund.
Julian Garner, for the charity, said: “This generous donation will assist us as we implement our new working model so we can best meet our clients' most pressing needs through three areas of support; early intervention, emotional wellbeing, and complex case support.
“Early intervention will ensure when people are first diagnosed, they can access information and undergo our sight loss MOT to identify areas where support can immediately be given, as well as be informed of daily living aids and assistive technologies to maintain their independence."
Each month Persimmon Homes donates up to £2,000 to community groups across the region.
