“I am delighted that National Eye Research Centre has set up its own fundraising page to support the Big Blind Walk. This enables you to either make your donation directly or to set up your own fundraising page so your friends can support you in your fundraising for the Big Blind Walk. My friends at National Eye Research Centre tell me it’s very easy to set up a fundraising page on their site and the commissions are much lower than some fundraising pages charge.”

Thank you for your support and donation!
