Dress Bright For Sight

Sep 9, 2020

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 invited 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. Now, as Covid-19 means we all have to make changes to our everyday lives, we are needed more than ever.

For one day between 21st and 27th September, which is National Eye Health Week, we are asking you to get your glad rags on and raise money for Sight Support Derbyshire. Don your most garish garments and make a donation, or ask friends and family to sponsor you. Join in with colleagues or friends. Join in if you’re working from home – just remember to ask your colleagues to put their sunglasses on before a video conference – or switch off your video!

Pay in your donation online by clicking on the button. And don’t forget to share a selfie of you dressed at your brightest best on our Facebook page, using #DressBrightForSight. To find out more about National Eye Health Week, and eye health, click on the second button.
