 6) Leaving a legacy

Many of those we have helped and supported over the past 100 years have been so kind as to leave us a lasting legacy, to ensure that we can continue to support those in our community who live with sight loss. We do not receive any Government funding and rely on voluntary donations and fundraising. No matter how much a gift in your will is, it will help us to continue our valuable work and continue to adapt to the needs of those we support.

Thank you for your support.
