Don’t Send Me A Card This Christmas

1 January 1970

This Christmas, we are partnering with Don’t Send Me A Card to help you save time, paper, and the planet by turning Christmas cards into vital donations for Sight Life. 

Instead of sending paper Christmas cards, you can use Don’t Send Me A Card to send e-cards to friends and family and donate the money you usually spend on cards and postage to us. You can save money and the planet by sending e-cards, knowing you will be supporting a valuable cause instead.

£ 10 could help someone attend a virtual peer support group to hear from others with their sight condition
£ 20 could help someone select the right assistive device to empower them to live independently
£ 50 could provide tailored technology support to help someone with sight loss stay connected
£ 100 could provide a home visit to someone newly diagnosed with sight loss

To get involved, follow the link to send your personalised e-cards and support Sight Life this Christmas:

About Sight Life

Sight Life (formerly Cardiff Institute for the Blind) supports people who are blind or partially sighted in south Wales. In 2020/21 we helped more than 3,000 people in Cardiff, Swansea, RCT (Rhondda Cynon Taf), Neath and Port Talbot.

We provide statutory services to people with sight loss on behalf of the local Councils in Cardiff and Swansea.
In cooperation with the NHS, we provide a support service (ECLO: Eye Clinic Liaison Officer) for patients newly diagnosed with sight loss in University Hospital of Wales (UHW “The Heath”) in Cardiff.

Our aims are to ensure that people with sight loss can take part in all aspects of society, including work and leisure.
We offer a range of training, clubs and activities including audio-described theatre trips, confidence building, cooking, drama, employment support, fitness, gardening, IT, music, photography, rambling and yoga to people with sight loss.

Established in 1865, we are one of Wales’ oldest charities. In spring 2022 we returned to being an independent charity after being part of the UK wide RNIB Group since 2009.

We have approximately a dozen staff and annual income in the region of £440,000 from statutory contracts, grants, trusts, The National Lottery, donations and legacies.

Sight Life changed its name from Cardiff Institute for the Blind in 2019 to reflect the fact that we work beyond Cardiff, including Swansea and RCT (Rhondda Cynon Taf). The name change also recognises the fact that we support people with any degree of sight loss, not only those who are blind.
