On 24 June, go Bright for Sight! By wearing yellow, you and your colleagues, friends and family can help to restore the sight of people who are needlessly blind.

Bright for Sight is an easy way to raise funds to fight avoidable blindness, and our fundraising packs contain tips to make your day a success, whether you’re taking part at home, at work or at school. Why not make a donation, then show off your yellow outfit over a video call, virtual quiz or distanced coffee morning?

Why yellow? Because yellow is the colour that is easiest for someone with a visual impairment to see. A headband, a tie, your favourite T-shirt – anything works. If it’s yellow, wear it and go Bright for Sight this June.

Watch our video below to learn more about the event.

How will I be making a difference?

Imagine losing your sight bit by bit, and with it your ability to do some of the things you enjoy: to go to school, to earn a living, or to look after yourself and your family. But just €32 can provide a sight-saving cataract operation, giving someone the chance at a better and brighter future. Learn how your gift can change lives
