Being a Sooty Box collector changes lives

Since RNIB started collecting donations with Sooty Boxes, we have raised over £11.5 million.

Finding out you're losing your sight can be a big shock, and due to a lack of sight loss advisors in the UK, many people are often left to digest the information alone.

RNIB provides invaluable services for thousands of people every day. From emotional support to practical guidance, we are able to be there for all people so they can live their life with confidence. You can help us continue to be there by helping to raise money with Sooty.

If you don't want to be a Sooty Box collector but still want to help, why not put up one of these posters in your area?
