World Sight day Challenge Silver award 2012

Posted on 26th February 2013

Cameron Optometry is delighted to announce that this year, we were given Optometry Giving Sight’s Silver Award for charitable fundraising. This was achieved by way of the kind donations of our patients.

Optometry Giving Sight is a British charity that currently supports 42 sustainable eye care projects across the developing world. The purpose of their work is to improve the quality of life for people who are needlessly blind, or vision impaired simply because they do not have access to an eye exam or a pair of spectacles. This is estimated to be 670 million people worldwide. World Sight Day 2012 was the culmination of a massive fundraising effort by optometry practices across the UK. It was marked in Malawi by the official hand over of a new Optometry teaching centre to the Malawi school of Optometry.

We would continue to encourage patients, particularly in lieu of payment for any minor spectacle repairs to pop a donation in the collection tin at the reception desk. A small way to continue to make a big difference to those less fortunate than ourselves. Thank you and well done!
