Grateful thanks to Waitrose, Locks Heath for selecting Gift of Sight as one of the Community Matters charities for February 2019.



Paul Osborne and a team of friends and family will be trekking Kilimanjaro to raise funds for our children's research, leaving the UK on the 1 March.  Huge thanks to everyone for their support and we'll look forward to finding out exactly how tricky the terrain was.  Please support them with a donation on their JustGiving page

Freddie post operatively at two years of agePaul's nephew Freddie became blind with acute onset bilateral cataracts.  He has received excellent treatment from Jay Self and his fellow clinicians in Southampton Eye Unit and is now able to live a happy, healthy and normal life.  This way of thanking Jay means he'll be able to continue his vital research projects.  Every penny counts!
