Donate to Insight Gloucestershire
Your donation, no matter how big or small, makes a BIG difference.
Every donation we receive goes towards helping those who have been newly diagnosed with sight loss or are living with sight loss and, with the number of people with sight loss likely to increase significantly in the coming years, every penny counts.
Please don’t forget to Gift Aid your donation if you can! It means we receive an extra 25p for every £1 donated, at no extra cost to you.
How will your donation help?
- £10 could pay for a USB reader, which can read books and newspapers to people with sight loss
- £25 could help pay for regular technology training sessions, teaching visually impaired people how to use special phones and tablets
- £50 could go towards the cost of a sight advisor visiting an isolated or frightened client at home
- £100 could go towards running a peer group support session in a community hub
Sight loss has practical and emotional consequences. It can restrict social and personal interaction, and lead to isolation. It can remove a person’s independence as they have to rely on others for simple day-to-day tasks. It can be dangerous and scary as people have to re-learn how to safely use their kitchen, move around their home, and go outside.
Sight loss can be devastating. Not everyone with sight loss needs our help, but many do. With your help, we can be there to make sure people don’t just survive, but thrive after sight loss. Thank you.
