£252raised of £500 target by 10 supporters

Weʼre raising £500 to donate to Sight Savers India. This charity provides cataract operations for the people in India who cannot afford to pay.

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.


This year I retire from teaching after 35 years in special education. The last 14 as a Qualified Teacher of the Visually Impaired. Last June I had cataracts removed in both eyes and saw for myself the difference it makes To mark my retirement I have decided to try to fund as many cataract operations for children in India as I can. So, if anyone would like to help me mark my retirement I would be very grateful for even a small donation to Sight Savers. Thank You

Thank you
