With Christmas approaching, some of us will already be looking to the new year. And what better way to start 2018 than by playing our online raffle and winning big?
As well as the £5,000 prize, there’s also a second prize of £1,000, third place gets £250 and five runners-up will get £100 each, so there are plenty of chances to win.
The income raised from ticket sales and donations will be matched by the UK government, pound for pound, meaning we can reach even more people with sight-restoring cataract surgery. The matched funds raised through UK Aid Match will support our projects in Pakistan and Bangladesh.
Why should you take part?
Cataracts are commonly associated with ageing, but children in developing countries are very much at risk too. Surgery to treat a child’s cataracts is more complex and expensive than for an adult, yet the consequences of delaying surgery can be devastating. A child’s sight may never fully develop, meaning they could miss out on an education and limit their opportunities to escape poverty. It is vital that we reach these children before their sight is lost forever.
