£535raised of £5,000 target by 25 supporters

Weʼre raising £5,000 to Macula Unit at Westmorland General Hospital, Kendal

Ambleside, Cumbria, United Kingdom

What is crowdfunding?

Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


I will be doing a Skydive to raise funds for my local eye clinic. They need to raise £100,000 for a purpose-built macula unit for people with macula degeneration.

Macula Degeneration is the leading cause of sight loss in the UK, effecting 1 in every 10 people over 65.

The money will provide new equipment and treatment rooms so that local people have access to sight-saving eye care close to home.

We want everyone to join us, and be a part in making this worthy cause a great success story!

Please donate and give somebody the gift of sight!

Please feel free to "share" your donation on facebook to raise more awareness for the cause, if you do please use the hashtag #goyellow and tag our page @maculaunitappeal

In addition to my skydive - Ambleside Opticians will be carrying out other fundraising activities throughout the coming months, you can follow our facebook page for regular updates and more information about the cause.
