As we get use to the "new normal", please spare a thought for people with sight loss for whom the easing of lockdown restrictions present challenges, with social distancing measures making everyday tasks daunting and confusing for many.

Your support can help to ensure people with sight loss have somewhere to turn for help and advice during these difficult times by helping us to make September Spectacular.

Stride for Sight

Take a Stride for Sight to raise funds and awareness for Sight Support HEY.

On your own, with your family or a group of friends or work colleagues, around the city, on a beach or through the woods, the choice is yours.

Not only will you get some exercise and fresh air, as well as have lots of fun, but by donating or raising £1 for every mile you walk, you will also be helping to support local people with sight loss.

You can make a donation yourself, or if you are looking for a real challenge, why not aim to raise sponsorship for a longer walk.

What to do next?

  • Set a date for you Stride for Sight and invite your friends and family to join you.
