Why we need your help

Is £20.20 worth the gift of sight?

We need your help now so we can keep our services running and give homeless and otherwise vulnerable people access to free eye care when they need it the most.

Many of us take good eyesight for granted and if we develop problems, we know we can get help. Homeless people are seriously disadvantaged when it comes to obtaining sight tests, glasses and eye care. They also suffer significantly poorer eye health than the general population.

We know from listening to the people who use our clinics how the many challenges of homelessness are compounded by poor eyesight. People need glasses to look for work, find accommodation or simply to keep themselves safe. Something as simple as receiving a pair of glasses can go a long way in restoring confidence and self-esteem.

For most of 2020 the people we expected to help missed out on getting the eye care they need because of the COVID-19 pandemic. With our clinics shut we also missed out on income we’d normally receive for NHS eye examinations for those of our patients who are eligible for free eye tests, and like other charities have struggled to raise money this year through fundraising events.

As charity partners to the global giving day, Giving Tuesday on 1st December 2020 we are looking to raise £2020 to help us run our opticians’ clinics through our appeal to #Give Back 2020 Vision. Introduced by our Patron, actor Ben Miles,  we will be sharing stories across social media about the difference we make to people’s lives and asking people to donate £20.20 to help us reach our target.

Please donate if you can .. and if you use social media please tell others about your gift to #GiveBack2020Vision by the link on the appeal page.

Thank you for your gift of 20:20 Vision!
