They laid their lives on the line

When someone makes a pledge to defend Queen and Country, they risk their lives for our freedom. We believe that no one who has served this country should have to battle blindness alone. Our mission will always be to help blind and vision-impaired ex-Service men and women live a life beyond sight loss.

But we can’t do this without you. Sight loss isn’t something that just gets better, however the right support and guidance can make the difference between a life lived, and a life lost.
