Fundraise with us

Whether it’s having your friends over for a quick cuppa and a shake of a collection bucket or scaling a mountain and completing the challenge of a lifetime, there are lots of ways you can support Sightsavers and raise money to give someone sight.

Last year, Sightsavers teams raised thousands of pounds to provide sight-saving operations for people living in the poorest parts of the world.

We’ve provided a few suggestions and lots of information for you below. For help with setting up an events page or your own event, more information on raising money for Sightsavers, or if you want us to mail you a fundraising pack, please get in touch with our events team at [email protected] or call 01444 446710.
