What your money can do
It’s always good to have a target to aim for, so take a look at what your fundraising could achieve for blind and partially sighted people below.
Currently we can only reach one in three blind and partially sighted people in the UK. With your support, it doesn’t have to be like this.
Even the smallest amounts can make a real difference and make every day better for blind and partially sighted people.
How your money helps:
- £87p of every pound you raise goes directly to helping blind and partially sighted children and adults.
- £5 can help us to answer a call to our Helpline from someone who has just found out they are losing their sight.
- £10 can help someone understand their eye condition and treatment through information from our Eye Health Team.
- £20 can help provide information and support to someone with sight problems seeking employment.
- £30 could pay for a ‘quality of life’ check that assesses all areas of someone’s life to find out if they are getting all the support they need.
