HERIB is delighted to announce its latest HERIB Hero is Yvonne Priestman.
Yvonne is an avid golfer and, as Captain of the Ladies Team at Ganstead Golf Club, chose HERIB as her Charity of the Year.
Over the last twelve months Yvonne, with the help of her committee, have been organising fundraising events, from golf days to cook offs, race night to quizzes to raise money to help the charity support local people with sight loss.
In total Yvonne raised an incredible £2,390 and called in to HERIB to hand over her donation to some of the members in person.
“I decided to fundraise in aid of HERIB as my father was visually impaired and so I understand the difference the charity’s work makes, ” say’s Yvonne.
HERIB’s Fundraising Manager Angela Gregory says: “We are so grateful for Yvonne’s amazing support and would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who has been involved in supporting her fundraising efforts. The money she has raised will help us to provide information and emotional support through our experienced staff, resource centre, booklets, support groups and information sessions and so really will make a difference to local people who are blind or partially sighted.”
