In RNC's 150th anniversary year, Will Writing Fortnight once again proved to be a great success.
The pandemic changed the way we use and handle money which had implications for the charity collection tins that RNC has placed with businesses in Herefordshire. To address this, we have added a Text Donate option to our collection tins so you can easily make a small donation while you are at the checkout, even if you don't have any cash.
We are deeply saddened to learn of the passing of Her Majesty The Queen and express our deepest condolences to The King and the entire royal family. The Royal National College for the Blind has had a longstanding relationship with the royal family. The Queen was the College's Patron for many years, with His Majesty King Charles III taking up the patronage in 1997. The Queen has left a legacy that cannot be matched, and we pay tribute to a life dedicated to serving our country and the Commonwealth with respect, dignity and grace. May she rest in peace.
We are deeply saddened to hear of the untimely passing of Dean Kronsbein, founder and chairman of Ultrafilter Medical. Mr Kronsbein was a friend to the College who, in November 2021, on behalf of his company, donated 12,000 high grade face masks to RNC, which he personally delivered in a Morris Minor Traveller, showing off his love of classic cars and larger than life character. Ultrafilter Medical's very generous gift allowed the College and its community to continue operating safely under Covid restrictions. We send our deepest condolences to Mr Kronsbein's family and all who knew him.
