In this short video, blind veteran Billy talks about how gifts in Wills to Blind Veterans UK have helped him rebuild his life after losing his sight.
“Without gifts in Wills, I wouldn’t have received the help I've needed.”
After 20 years in the Royal Horse Artillery, Billy lost his sight during his service in Bosnia. While exhuming mass graves, a virus entered his eyes and infected both his optic nerves. Not long after, he woke up completely blind.
“It's the ordinary things that bring me the most pleasure and these are often the hardest things to do when you're blind. The ability to make my wife a cup of coffee; to help around the house... Just to be independent.
"Blind Veterans UK needs to be there for future veterans with sight loss like me. That’s why, with my wife, Karen, we've pledged a gift in our Will. We hope you will join us in building a better future for those who have served our country."
