Bolton Match Funding Appeal

Everyone is trying to make their money go further right now. Between now and 1st April, every donation* towards our work in Bolton, will be matched and funded, by a local businessman.

In Bolton, to support those of all ages with sight loss, we offer counselling, training, support, companionship and practical tips to assist with everyday tasks. Your donation will go a long way to supporting those in your local community living with sight loss.

“When I received my diagnosis I felt so scared and could only focus on all the things I thought I might lose. The counselling helped me focus on what I can still do and how to change my negative thoughts into positive ones. Through my 1-1 digital assessment I was given lots of tools and tips to get me back to work and get on with my life. I cannot thank Henshaws enough”

How your donation could make a difference:

£5,000 would be worth £10,000 which would fund all of our social activities in Bolton for 8 weeks, supporting 240 service users giving them the opportunity to develop new friendships to help elevate feelings of isolation and learn new skills to help grow their confidence and independence
