Lord Combustion Services – Charity Ball

Thank you to Lord Combustion Services for choosing us as one of their charities for 2018.

The company held their charity ball on Saturday 6th October, and held a display and information stand on behalf of WSB.

The stand contained aids and equipment along with description cards of the items and how they operate,to enhance awareness of the products that may help with sightloss.

There was also WSB leaflets and information on how we can support and assist individuals who have a visual impairment.

It is a real honour for us to be a chosen charity and we would like to thank everyone involved with such a successful event and appreciate all your hard work raising funds for WSB.

Well done to Tony and David for braving the shave to raise funds for the Society.

They braved having their beards, moustaches and for Tony, his hair, razzed off by our CEO Amanda, who was also brave as she had never used hair clippers in her life before!!!!

We say a huge thank you to Tony and David, as they raised £425.00 through their sponsor money, thank you for doing this for WSB.

Charity Week 2017

Please Support Graeme Brookes

My grandfather Ronald ‘Ronaldo’ Brookes was a life long Walsall FC fan. He watched his first game in 1922. He was there for every relegation to every promotion for 78 years! The thing that made him that extra bit special was…

He was deaf and blind. Born deaf and losing his sight as a teenager – he didn’t let it beat him and it certainly didn’t stop him watching Walsall as much as possible, both home and away. This is why I am walking 20 miles a day for around 7 and half consecutive days until I walk down Wembley Way on Sunday March 22nd to watch the Super Saddlers.

Christmas Stall 2009

To raise some much needed funds, staff braved the freeeeeezing cold in December 2009, selling gifts, reindeer food and other items, as well as face painting for voluntary contributions. We raised over £500.

Local Pub Support

We have had loyal support over the years from local pubs raising funds for the Society, including The George, The Fountain and The Cuckoo and Bell.

The George Pub in Willenhall, raised £400 for us in 2010.

The Fountain Pub in Walsall, have held quiz nights and raffles, including raffling a Christmas hamper in 2010

The Cuckoo and Bell Pub in Walsall had been raising money for us throughout 2010, with various theme nights, including Halloween. For Valentine’s Day they donated and raffled off a cuddly toy bear, they also put together a hamper for Christmas which they raffled for us.

Flying high in the sky

Chantelle, is from Walsall and is registered as partially sighted and suffers with Nystagmus,

Chantelle jumped out of a plane and raised over £300 in the process.

Of course, we don’t expect everybody to jump out of a plane, (unless you really want to!) because there are literally hundreds of ways that you can fundraise for WSB, a cake sale or a quiz night can raise amazing amounts of money – and all for a good cause!
