Help us celebrate our 102nd Birthday! Its a challenging year (minor understatement) and wed like you to help us see it off in a positive way! A lot has changed in the last two years, we have opened three more charity shops to support our work, which is great. The shops arent able to generate the income we need yet though, so we really need your help since we cant currently do our other normal community and events fundraising.

Other things have changed as well. Due to Covid, our community support workers provide most of their support by telephone or online and have learned how to safely visit members at home, where that is still necessary. Weve gotten really good at setting up virtual befriending and support groups using group telephone and video calls! Weve continued to take on the challenge of helping people with sight loss in spite of restrictions and we challenge you to join us.

Pick a fun challenge for yourself and get your friends and family to sponsor you. Set up a fundraising page and then, go for it! Raise 10£ or 102£ or more, it all helps!

Some ideas:

Walk for 102 minutes

Hula hoop 102 times

Dont speak for 10.2 hours (thats 10 hours and 12 minutes)

Host a virtual coffee morning

Host a Zoom fancy dress/Halloween party
