Fundraise for us

Jo Phipps and partner with a bicycle fundraising for Blind Veterans UK

If you’re fundraising for Blind Veterans UK, you’re not alone.

You’re joining thousands of other supporters who help us raise funds to provide vital, life-changing support for vision-impaired ex-Servicemen and women.

And we’re here to help you make the most of your fundraising activity.

Our fundraising team will make it easy for you to raise as much money as possible to change the lives of our blind veterans.

If you’ve got your own place on any other challenge event, you can still fundraise for Blind Veterans UK. Tell us what you’re doing, and we’ll help you reach your fundraising goal.
