Eyesight is a local charity which was set up originally to support the work of the eye unit at H.M, Stanley Hospital, St Asaph, Denbighshire, when the hospital closed the eye unit moved to the hospital at Abergele, Conwy, and became the Stanley eye unit which is still our reason for being. We aim to fund or part fund items of equipment and training courses as appropriate.
The eye unit sees approximately 40,000 patient as scheduled appointments and undertakes some 6,000 surgical procedures, this is, therefore, a very busy unit deserving of everyone’s support. Eyesight does not exist to plug gaps in the N.H.S. provision but is supplement statuary provision in order to help the unit maintain it’s excellent reputation, which has been achieved by the hard work of the Doctors, nurses and all the support staff.
Eyesight raises its funds from either grant application or by direct fundraising efforts such as coffee mornings, recycling projects etc. Eyesight is also able to call on some brave souls to undertake more spectacular events such as long-distance cycling bike events and marathons. two of our units nurses took part in the Virgin Money London Marathon this year raising a substantial amount of sponsorship from corporate sponsors and the general public, they also enjoyed it smiling all the way round.
Deposit required is £70.00 Minimum fundraise £395.
