Sight Life’s dedicated staff and volunteers work tirelessly to provide a wide range of services for blind and partially sighted people. We could not do this without the kindness of both individuals and organisations. Donations of money, gifts and other valuable items (such as shares, land and products) fund our work. Gifts and prizes that we receive are used in raffles and auctions.
One of the most effective ways to donate to Sight Life is through a regular monthly donation. By choosing to give a regular monthly donation, you will be helping us to plan ahead and ensure funds are available when they are needed the most. Regular donations give us a consistent income that we can predict, giving us the security and confidence to fund essential services for the blind and visually impaired people we support. Longer term donations are also more cost effective for us as a charity. There are:
- Fewer administrative and bank charges
- More savings on the cost of marketing to attract new donors
- More of your funds spent supporting Sight Life’s services

Why should you help us? Some of our service users would like to tell you:
“Sightlife workshop groups are brilliant and I have learnt a lot. The guest speakers are good and I am enjoying keeping in contact with everyone. I like to hear everybodies voices it cheers me up and makes me feel less isolated. Everyone is so wonderful and great.”
“It was lovely to have someone enquire as to how you are managing. Only a few people from organisations have contacted me. It’s nice to know someone cares. We are all in the same boat, but it can feel very lonely and isolated.”
Gift Aid is a UK Government scheme that allows charities to reclaim the basic rate tax back from HM Revenues and Customs on donations you make.
Once you have indicated to us that you’re happy for us to claim Gift Aid on your behalf and that you pay sufficient Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax in that particular financial year, we’ll reclaim this money at no extra cost to you thereby increasing the value of your donation. We are able to reclaim 25 pence in every pound back – so your £1 donation is worth £1.25 to us. Click here to download a Gift Aid form.
