How will a gift in my will help SRSB

SRSB has been around for over 155 years offering support, advice and friendship to visually impaired people across Sheffield City Region. We have to make sure that we will be here for future generations and your legacy will help us to do this.

“That first visit to SRSB I remember clearly like a weight had lightened, I’d found somewhere that understood my frustrations and just as important, could help me.”

However SRSB were life savers. From attending Little Sparklers when Finlay was just a few weeks old, to making life-long friends, to the advice and support provided by staff, to nipping in for a coffee and a chat. It’s like having that one friend you always can turn to and rely on. Knowing Finlay will have this support in place as he grows is reassuring.”

Abi, whose son Finlay attended our ‘Little Sparklers’ pre-school playgroup for visually impaired children until he went to mainstream school.

“Thank you for offering me a lifeline at a time in my life when nothing will be the same again. It’s given me hope and comfort. Having this link with you has helped my depression too, as I really was at rock bottom.”

“I used to be a driver and was heartbroken to leave my job when my sight deteriorated. Coming to SRSB was the best thing I ever did and it has meant a lot to me, as I would have become very depressed. Attending the centre has motivated me and the atmosphere is great. I would recommend it to anyone!”

David, 76, who has been coming to SRSB for over 25 years.

“Through Little Sparklers we have met families in similar situations and share experiences, discuss medical opinion and offer each other help and advice.”
