During this incredibly difficult time, all of us are being challenged and moved in ways that seemed almost unimaginable just a few weeks ago.
Here at Dorset Blind Association, we move on: our priority, as always, to support our community in every way still available to us. Granted, we may not be able to go out and visit our members face-to-face but our amazing team continue to work in other ways, supporting our members over the phone and guiding them through what is a particularly unsettling time.
Though our range of services adapt and continue, the current lockdown means our fundraising opportunities have dramatically reduced. The necessary restrictions brought in by government mean that we can no longer fundraise through our community activities (bucket collections, quiz nights, collection tins, etc) and events like our Motor Show. This leaves us with a considerable hole in our income.
In fact, most charities will be expecting around 50% loss of voluntary income due to coronavirus – whilst almost half will expect a great increase in demand.
We appreciate that times are difficult for many people but, if you have the means and the inclination, please donate to Dorset Blind Association HERE
The next few months will be challenging for all of us and, as we rely almost exclusively on the generosity of the community, your support has never been so important to us and the vulnerable people we support – thank you.
We’re all in this together #DorsetTogether
