The charitable trust at a Midland law firm has donated £1,000 to help a college for blind and partially sighted people buy new equipment.

The money from Harrison Clark’s Charitable Trust has allowed New College Worcester to buy a Zoom EX scanner which makes text accessible to students through magnification and speech.

The Zoom EX takes scanned text and converts it into an electronic text file, which can be saved, edited and read to the student.

Jonathan Brew, senior partner at Harrison Clark and trustee of Harrison Clark’s Charitable Trust said: “We feel very privileged to be able to help such a valuable cause in our local community and it is wonderful to see what a difference this technology can make to the students of New College Worcester.”

Harrison Clark’s Charitable Trust has raised and donated over £100,000 to charitable causes throughout the Three Counties since its inception six years ago.
