Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit our JustGiving page for our 100 mile bike ride.

Around 2 million people in the UK live with sight loss.

On Sunday 24th September 2017 we - The QEHB Eye Cycle Team - will be tackling the inaugural 100 mile Velo challenge. The QEHB Eye Cycle Team will see surgeons, patients and their families join forces to raise money for sight-saving equipment as part of the QEHB Eye Appeal.

The money raised will go directly to buy the latest generation of OCT scanners that enable earlier detection of diseases such as macular degeneration, glaucoma and diabetic eye disease, and helps guide treatment.

Please help us help our patients by sponsoring us - every penny counts and thank you so much!
