Beacon Centre Backs Local Charity Day

The Black Country’s leading sight loss charity, the Beacon Centre, is backing the Government’s first ever Local Charities Day which takes place tomorrow.

The day has been organised to celebrate small, local charities and community groups with the aim of putting smaller charities into the spotlight, and showing people the work they do. 

The Beacon Centre supports people with sight loss across the region to become more independent and make the most out of life. Minister for Civil Society Rob Wilson said:

“On Local Charities Day, I want us all to shout from the rooftops about small local charities, their energy, commitment, expertise and the benefits they bring to their communities.”

Beacon Centre chief executive Arwyn Jones added: “The Beacon Centre has been working to support people who are visually impaired for more than 140 years, with the public’s support we hope to reach more people than ever before in 2017.”
