Make a difference – Vision Foundation

Make a difference

Please join us and make a difference to the lives of blind and partially sighted people. There are so many ways you can support the Vision Foundation…

Fundraise for us
The Vision Foundation would not be here without your support. It’s thanks to your marathons, bake sales, raffles and donations that we can be there to transform the lives of more people like J, Edward and Mavis. If you would like to host your own fundraising event, such as an open garden or table top sale, we would love to hear from you and help you make your event a huge success.

Volunteer with us
From volunteer mentor to marathon cheerleader, shop assistant to vintage treasure-seeker, there are so many ways you can make a difference by giving your time and expertise to the Vision Foundation. Volunteering can also help increase your skills and confidence. It’s a great way to improve your CV, encounter different experiences and meet new people. And we’ll be there to support you all the way.

Host one of our collection boxes
Did you know we have over 4000 collection boxes in newsagents, chemists, opticians and a variety of other local shops and businesses across London? Each year we collect over a million pennies, which make a HUGE difference! Do you know of a local shop or business where we might be able to pop a box?

Leave a gift in your Will
If you would like to leave a lasting legacy, we would be thrilled if you considered the Vision Foundation. A gift in your Will – whatever the size – enables the Vision Foundation to fund crucial projects and services across London that ensure blind and partially sighted people can maintain their independence and be part of their local community.

How to include the Vision Foundation in your Will
If Will writing is new to you, Vision Foundation have partnered with Farewill, the UK’s leading online Will writing service. To set up your free Will, call 020 8036 3933 or visit and quote ‘VISIONSPRING’. It’s a quick and easy process, taking under 30 minutes and it doesn’t cost you a penny. If you already have a solicitor, they will be able to amend your Will to include a gift to the Vision Foundation. You will need to give them our address and registered charity number (1074958).

Our warmest thanks to all our supporters who have already chosen to help us in this special way. If you have included us in your Will, please let us know so we can thank you properly.
