CHILDREN suffering from visual impairment will be zooming in on a new club thanks to a donation of more than £45,000 from a radio station.

Heart Wiltshire presenters Ben and Mel handed over a cheque for £45,00 to Devizes based charity Wiltshire Sight after its parent company raised funds from its charity arm Global's Make Some Noise. It will completely fund the cost of Zoom Club, an activity day to help visually impaired children meet new friends, for the next two years.

Heart Wiltshire managing editor, Marcus Langreiter said: “Global’s Make Some Noise plays such an important role in raising awareness of small charities like Wiltshire Sight. The kindness of listeners means that Global’s Make Some Noise increase its donation, which will help Wiltshire Sight care for more people with sight loss.”

Leanne Hubbard, chief executive at Wiltshire Sight, said: “We cannot thank Heart Wiltshire and its listeners enough for their incredible support. As a benificary of Global’s Make Some Noise, we were hoping for a grant of £36,300 but when they surprised us with a cheque for £45,100 we were totally overwhelmed.

"The extra funds will allow us to fund a brand new sensory library. This will make a huge difference to number of people we can look after.”
