  • £5 helps to fund the training of an eyecare worker from the developing world
  • £10 helps to buy laboratory equipment used in scientific research to discover new ways of preventing blindness
  • £25 helps to fund practical research into the best preventive methods
  • £ any amount you choose to give helps to prevent blindness

All of our work is funded from voluntary sources including gifts in Wills. Therefore the generosity of individuals, trusts and companies is key in enabling us to deliver our work in preventing blindness in the developing world.

Gift Aid

All gifts made to charity now qualify for tax relief. In effect this will mean that the value of all donations will be increased in value. For example, a donation of £25 will become £31.25, or even more if the donor pays income tax at the higher rate.
