We're asking Londoners to give generously to support our blind ex-Servicemen and women this Christmas
We are calling on London commuters to give generously to support our blind ex-Servicemen and women this Christmas.
Our volunteers will be running bucket collections at five Underground stations during the festive season. They are:
Monday 2nd December 2013 - Clapham Common Station
Thursday 5th December 2013 - Hammersmith Underground Station
Tuesday 10th December 2013 - High Barnet Station
Friday 13th December 2013 - Temple Underground Station
Monday 16th December 2013 - Mansion House Underground Station
Money raised from donations will go towards our ongoing support for veterans with sight loss, as well as working towards reaching out to the estimated 68,000 veterans who are unaware that they are eligible for our support.
"Christmas is traditionally a time when we think of those in need, and so we're calling on Londoners to look out for our bucket collections this December," said collections organiser Aaron Tillyer. "Our work helping those who have served this country could not happen were it not for the support of the public."
