2013 has been a productive year for The Eye Fund.

In May we had our third exhibition of Simon’s graphic designs opened by The Eye Fund patron, Mike McCartney. Joining us this time were The Wirral Potters. Their beautiful pottery attracted a lot of attention and they very kindly donated all the proceeds to the charity. Total from the week long exhibition was in the region of £1300.

At the exhibition, Jak, an eleven year old student who is suffering failing vision was presented with a specially adapted iPad to help with his studies. Kerry and Karl received Samsung tablets to help them at work. A cheque for
£2000 was presented to The Wirral Society of the Blind and Partially Sighed to help them purchase a Braille machine. Thanks to everyone who helped to make it possible.

Trustee of The Eye Fund, Dr Deborah Broadbent was married in June and asked the guests to donate to the charity rather than give gifts. The amount raised was an amazing £1100.

Friends of The Eye Fund at Hope Place in Prenton helped us hold a Race Night on their premises. That, combined with another Race Night supported by the Department of the Environment raised over £700.

Eye Fund counsellor at St. Paul’s Hospital, Liverpool, Wendy Lee, very generously held a “Jewellery Party” in her home. Sales from The Eye Fund merchandise, jewellery, scarves and pictures, raised over £400. Well Done! Wendy.

If you could do what Wendy did we will gladly supply all the necessary goods. Could YOU help?

Every penny raised goes to help people like Simon.
