    Story

    Each year AB&S Wholesale Meats chooses a charity to support and raises money throughout the year.

    This year we have chosen to support Olivia's Vision. Olivia’s Vision was established in 2010 to provide information, support and advice for anyone affected by uveitis. Uveitis means inflammation of the uvea, the inside of the eye, which is made up of three main parts: the iris, the ciliary body and the choroid. 80% of Childhood uveitis is in children with a pre-diagnosed auto-immune disease however in the 10-15% of uveitic children who do not have a pre-diagnosed auto-immune disease, the uveitis can be chronic by the time it is discovered. Younger children have no way of communicating to their carer their worsening eyesight, and quite often the younger the age, the more likely they are to adapt to having lost the ability to see colours and 3D. In many cases children will lose all vision in one eye and not know, because to them it will be ‘normal’.

    Most children do not have any symptoms of uveitis, such as sensitivity to light, or a sore red eye. Without these symptoms it is more likely that complications will be present by the time the uveitis is diagnosed.

    To kick-start our fund raising 8 colleagues are taking part in the Manchester 10K. Please support them and help them to raise their target of £500
