RSBC is a national charity focused on delivering support to blind and partially sighted children, young people and their families.
Tom O’Loughlin, Chief Executive at Capricorn Shading Group, explains what first inspired the approach to RSBC; “For some time there has been a strong appetite within the business to team up with a charity and be a force for good above and beyond our everyday mission to sell our products. The idea came to me as I’d been called the “blind man” on so many occasions. I thought how great it would be if my reply to this poor joke could be that, in all seriousness, “every sale we make benefits blind children.”
“After hearing about some of the ways RSBC have helped blind and partially sighted children in the West Midlands and beyond, we were convinced immediately that they were the right partner for us.”

Over the Summer period, we experienced a significant demand for Perfect Fit blinds as we experienced one of the longest and hottest Summers on record.
By looking into the demands in the marketplace, we noticed there was a strong requirement for shorter lead times and the opportunity to pass on savings from bulk orders. As a result, we are able to offer cost-effective offerings to trade thanks to our developed calculation tool and in-house manfucaturing facilities to help the trade save cost on Perfect Fit blinds.
