Help us celebrate our 102nd Birthday! It’s a challenging year (minor understatement) and we’d like you to help us see it off in a positive way! A lot has changed in the last two years, we have opened three more charity shops to support our work, which is great. The shops aren’t able to generate the income we need yet though, so we really need your help since we can’t currently do our other normal community and events fundraising.
Other things have changed as well. Due to Covid, our community support workers provide most of their support by telephone or online and have learned how to safely visit members at home, where that is still necessary. We’ve gotten really good at setting up virtual befriending and support groups using group telephone and video calls! We’ve continued to take on the challenge of helping people with sight loss in spite of restrictions and we challenge you to join us.
Pick a fun challenge for yourself and get your friends and family to sponsor you. Set up a fundraising page, you can follow this link https://dorsetblind.org.uk/help-us/fundraising/challenge-events/ to the fundraising page on our website. Then, go for it! Raise £10 or £102 or more, it all helps!
