Dress Bright For Sight

Sep 17, 2019

Bright blue skies, red sunsets, the changing colours of Autumn leaves. Just some of the beautiful sights we are fortunate to see thanks to the power of our eyes.

For National Eye Health Week, we’re inviting you to create your own riot of colour at work and at play to celebrate everything we can see – and to raise money for those who miss out because of a sight loss condition.

People who are visually impaired have their own way of noticing changes in the weather, the day and the seasons, but often have to learn new ways of doing everyday tasks to keep their independence. We can only help them do this with your support.

What to do:

  • Gather a group of friends or colleagues together and choose one day during National Eye Health Week – 23rd to 29th September
  • Sign up using the button below to let us know that you are taking part
  • On that day, dress in the brightest colours you can find and hold a collection for Sight Support Derbyshire.
  • Don’t forget to share your photographs with us so we can put them on social media!
  • When you sign up we will send you some eye health information to share with staff, posters to tell everyone what you’re doing, and some ideas of other things you can do to make the most of the day and raise even more money.

    Do you run a children’s group or nursery?

    Why not sign up for the children to take part? Young children love bright colours and you could even run a cake sale for parents and carers! We will send you information about children’s eye health to give to them too.
