Support us

Fundraising events, donations, regular gifts, legacies and donations in lieu of flowers at funerals of loved ones help us to support our critical research studies.


We are incredibly grateful to every donor who has contributed to Gift of Sight. We very much appreciate our loyal supporters without whom we would find it difficult to continue our vital research.

The research laboratories cost approximately £600,000 per annum to run, including salaries, equipment and maintenance. It is imperative that we help cover some of this cost to secure our future research projects to beat blindness.

Please view Professor Lotery's plea for your support.


Donating to our Appeal is easy.

Please donate to support our critical research through our Justgiving web page or by using our 'Donate' button on the top right corner of this page.  Please use the dropdown box to choose the speciality you wish to support.

Please text your donation to GOFS01 followed by the amount you would like to donate ( £3/ £5 /£10) to 70070 and we receive 100% of your gift.

All text messages are free on all networks.  Your donation will simply be added to your bill or taken off your phone credit if you use 'pay as you go'.
