How you help
Every day, 250 people in the UK start to lose their sight. Many people won't get any practical or emotional support when they need it most. We want to change that.
It costs just £250 for someone with sight loss to attend an RNIB Living Well with Sight Loss course. These courses allow attendees to get valuable local information and support, meet others in similar situations, and learn practical skills. Your fundraising will help ensure that no one faces sight loss alone.
