Please give a gift this Christmas that could help provide the kit a blind veteran like Mark needs to live independently

Mark couldn't have begun to imagine what he would do when he lost his sight 20 years ago after a horrific accident. He struggled to come to terms with his dreadful loss and didn’t know who to turn to. He came close to giving up hope.

There were many dark days, yet Mark remembers clearly when he could, finally, see a light at the end of the tunnel. As he explains: “Blind Veterans UK gave me this gadget called a liquid level indicator which beeps when your mug is full so you don’t burn yourself. The first time I made a cup of tea was incredible. "
Blind Veteran, Mark Threadgold

Will you give a gift this Christmas that could help a blind veteran like Mark pack up their troubles and ‘smile, smile, smile’?

£40 could provide four liquid level indicators to help four blind veterans regain their independence

Today, Mark lives on his own and, with the help of kit provided thanks to the kind donations of supporters like you, is fully independent.

With his re-found confidence Mark has completed a number of amazing fundraising challenges for Blind Veterans UK, including climbing Kilimanjaro. He is a fine example of how much, with your support, veterans living with sight loss can achieve.

What will you put in a kit bag this Christmas for a blind veteran?

Thank you for helping a blind veteran pack up their troubles and smile, smile, smile
