MAKE A DIFFERENCE, MAKE A DONATION
Choosing which good cause to donate to is a very personal decision and often made with family members and friends in mind.
If you are looking for a Charity to support that provides services to people with a visual impairment, The Partially Sighted Society can guarantee that all donations help to fund our FREE services and not administration and marketing costs.
There are many ways to donate, but all donations, however large or small, are gratefully accepted and used to provide free enhanced low vision assessments, advocacy, advice and support to visually impaired people of all ages and abilities.
As an organisation who does not receive any statutory funding we rely greatly on your donations, that is why we feel it is important that you know your kindness is going to the people you intended it for.
HOW CAN YOU MAKE A DIFFERENCE?
As a small charity The Partially Sighted Society relies on donations. If you are able to, setting up a recurring contribution, no matter how small, provides us with a dependable source of funding. And every donation, big or small is used to make a difference to someone living with sight loss. Please click the amount you would like to donate per month.
£5 a month will pay for 2 symbol of visual disability badges, an arm-band or lanyard or fund 2 bold-lined school books for a child with a visual impairment
£10 a month will pay towards an enhanced low vision assessment – helping people to make the best use of their remaining vision
£25 a month will pay towards a sight test with our optometrist and help fund a magnifier, light or electronic magnifier for those who cannot afford them

Leave a Legacy in your memory
Writing a Will is essential if you want to be certain your wishes are met. After you have looked after your family, home and funeral you may want to leave a legacy to The Partially Sighted Society to help to ensure the good work we do to support people with a visual impairment continues.
If you have already organised a Will you can add a Codicil, which is a legally binding supplement to a Will, containing an addition to your original Will.
If you do not have a Will or want to arrange a Codicil and do not have your own Solicitor, The Partially Sighted Society is working with Doncaster Solicitors, Paul Bullen & Co, at 10 Albion Place, South Parade, Doncaster DN1 2EG or call 01302 819000. Mention our name and you will receive your first half hour appointment free.
If you would like a copy of our Legacy Leaflet you can download one here or call 01302 965195 and we can post one to you.
Remembering a loved one
If The Partially Sighted Society has supported your loved one in anyway and you wanted us to be your chosen Charity to donate to, you could donate in the usual ways or having a collection at your loved ones funeral in lieu of flowers is often a meaningful way to donate to a cause that was close to their heart.
We can provide specially designed donation envelopes if you would prefer. Please call 01302 965195 to order them.
Volunteer your time
We often arrange stands in supermarkets and shopping areas and take our collection tins. If you have a few hours a month to spare and would like to take part to raise funds please call 01302 965195.
Become our Corporate Friend!
Positive Public Relations is never a bad thing for any company or organisation and if it helps support free services for people in your community everyone is a winner!
It’s a well-known fact that most of us are going to live longer which means more of us will have a visual impairment in our twilight years.
Currently 250 people per day are diagnosed with sight loss. By 2050 this figure is set to double and worldwide it is set to triple. You could be included in that number, but without the support of the local business community The Partially Sighted Society may not be around to help you.
Therefore, when considering your charity of choice, doesn’t it make sense to choose us?
The Partially Sighed Society does not receive any statutory funding. All donations and memberships go towards free Enhanced Low Vision Assessments, support and information and we could not provide these without your support. Many thanks!
