There are an estimated 22,000 blind and partially sighted children and young people in England and Wales alone.
Sight loss affects every community.
Despite this, most people (around two thirds) have never met a child who has lost their sight.
A lack of support for parents, fewer opportunities to learn vital life skills, and limited access to positive social experiences mean that blind children are at a serious disadvantage when it comes to their employment prospects, social development and emotional well-being.
At RSBC, we create a better life for blind children, by helping every young person we work with to find and fulfil their own unique potential.
But we can’t do it alone.
Our community fundraisers are vital members of the team. From rotary clubs and WI groups to smaller, informal community groups, our network of passionate, dedicated community supporters help us to raise the funds that we need to keep our services going for blind children and their families.
Are you part of a community group that could give time or raise money to help blind children?
Whether it’s by volunteering with RSBC, making us your Charity of the Year, or by hosting events that will bring your community together at the same time as raising much-needed funds, there are many ways that your community group can support RSBC:
- Host a Gala Evening with ticket sales, auctions and raffles in aid of RSBC
- Arrange cash collections in supermarkets, shopping centres and other busy venues
- Hold your own fundraising event - from a fun run to a community bake-off
