Nelson firm donates Virtual Reality headsets to local youngsters

Nelson based Blackburn Distributions has kindly donated 50 Virtual Reality headsets to children in the East Lancashire community.

The mobile VR headsets hold smartphones in place and feature Bluetooth controls, allowing users to be completely immersed in the gaming experience.

The supplement manufacturer is gifting the high-tech headsets to both the Children’s ward at Blackburn Hospital and to the local Burnley community, via a competition with the Burnley Express, to find the most deserving recipients in the area.

Ben Blackburn, Founder and CEO, Blackburn Distribution said: “We believe it is really important to give something back to the local community, especially at this time of year. We hope the virtual reality headsets are enjoyed by the children that use them.

“Furthermore, giving a gift at Christmas to those that deserve them most, should stretch beyond family and friends. I hope that other local businesses will follow our example and give something back to their local community.”
