Jobs fear at Cornwall Blind Association

Two jobs could go at the Cornwall Blind Association (CBA) which says it is under considerable financial pressure because of the economic downturn.

A letter to staff from chairman Neil Sargent said the charity also had to use reserves to deliver services.

The charity said it would continue to deliver services to blind and partially sighted people in the county.

The charity's income last year was £727,459, but its outgoings were £875,288.

The association has been running for 155 years and helps about 3,000 people in Cornwall.

Terri Rosnau, director of the CBA, said: "The pots of funding for our services have got smaller.

"It's a knock-on effect of the state of the economy."
