Jean – Penzance
Jean from Penzance had been using a small second hand electronic magnifier to help her to read but as her sight deteriorated she found she could no longer see clearly when she was using it. After coming along to an event that iSightCornwall was attending, Jean discovered the Snow Electronic Magnifier and knew it would make a difference to her so she applied for one through the Inspiring Futures Fund.
Jean said: “I’m absolutely delighted to have received this magnifier through the fund; it’s large enough to see but small enough to be portable so I can take it anywhere with me. I will be able to read menus when I go out for meals and read books when I’m on the train. I‘m even hoping to take up drawing again.
“I’m very independent and don’t want to have to rely on other people to read things for me. With this magnifier I can do much more for myself. It has opened a door for me and gives me more hope than anything before.”
