WE HAVE RAISED £1,581.00 IN OUR WALK FOR WORLD SIGHT DAY EVENT 👁 (158% of our fundraising target)
Last Thursday the 14th October, in aid of World Sight Day, the Vision Executives team, as well as, friends and family endeavoured to climb the Yorkshire Three Peaks in less than 12 hours. We completed the 25 mile 5200ft challenge with just 15 minutes to go and therefore collected the final funds from our sponsors earlier this week. To put this in perspective, the final amount of £1581.00 will pay for sight saving surgeries in some of the remote areas around the world and be used to train new opticians, optometrists and opthalmologits ensuring a sustainable future for regions with little or no access to eyecare services.
The funds will be divided equally between three amazing and worthwhile charities: Sight For All, Himalayan Cataract Project and ANDEAN MEDICAL MISSION.
