Simplyhealth supports Macular Society’s Daily Living Champion service

Healthcare provider Simplyhealth has donated £50,000 to the Macular Society to support its Daily Living Champion service, which trains volunteers to demonstrate low vison aids to others with macular disease throughout the UK.

The five year project will allow 6,000 individuals to trial and learn how equipment such as liquid level indicators, talking clocks and tablet computers can make their lives easier. The project was also partly funded by the Freemasons’ Grand Charity, which donated the other £50,000 that was required.

Mark Hamson, Chairman of Simplyhealth Charitable Committee
We’ve been supporters of the Macular Society for many years and we’re delighted to be supporting the Daily Living Champions service. It’s a great cause which will help people with macular conditions to gain the confidence to become more independent.
Mark Hamson, Chairman of Simplyhealth Charitable Committee
Thank you to The Freemasons’ Grand Charity and Simplyhealth’s Charitable Committee. The volunteers will demonstrate gadgets at our local groups and events, giving people a chance to have a go themselves, and the chance to take their independence back.
Richard Elliott, Chairman of the Macular Society
