Lincoln and Lindsey Blind Society raise £1,000 thanks to Lincs Lotto players

27 February 2020

Lincoln and Lindsey Blind Society has fundraised £1,000 thanks to Lincs Lotto players.


The charity was set up in 1921 to improve the quality of life of visually impaired people. They achieve this by encouraging people to live as independently as possible through home visits, social groups, and community-based activities and support.


The charity have used funds from Lincs Lotto to run their befriending service. They said:


“We are delighted that people have raised money through the Lincs Lotto to support our service. Over 630 people have benefitted from this project and we know that there are many more who will benefit over the coming years.


“Visually impaired people frequently live isolated and lonely lives and this funding will enable us to help them get some of their life back through the willing efforts of the volunteers who are essential to the Befriending Service’s success.”
