Spread the Cheer Appeal

No Christmas card appeal

a selection of Christmas cards

HERIB is hoping to spread some festive cheer this Christmas with its no Christmas card appeal by encouraging you to think about donating money to help us make the future brighter for local people with sight loss instead of buying and posting Christmas cards.

Simply go to our Spread the Cheer Appeal page on Justgiving  and donate the money that you would have spent on cards and postage. 

Then, don't forget to download our individual or family donation message and email it to your friends and family to let them know that you have donated in their name!


What could your donation do

£10  could pay for a liquid level indicator to help a visually impaired person to pour hot drinks safely and independently.

£25  could fund a one-on-one tuition session to help a visually impaired person learn how to use assistive technology to keep in touch with their family and friends using smart phones and tablets.

£65 could fund a home visit by one of our Community Advice Officers to offer crucial advice and emotional support someone who has just been disgnosed with an eye condition.

£100 could pay for transport hire for one SocialEYES outing to offer isolated people with sight loss an opportunity for social interaction and friendship.
