Healthspan partnership with Fight For Sight to help make eye disease a thing of the past
Posted 14 June 2013 12:00 AM by Healthspan
For every pack of OptiVision* and Retinex* sold (up to and including 31st May 2014), Healthspan will donate 5p to support Fight For Sight’s work.
Nearly 2 million people in the UK are living with sight loss– approximately one in 30 people. Every day around 100 people across the UK start to lose their sight which can impact on all aspects of life. Fight For Sight is the main UK charity funding pioneering research to prevent sight loss and treat eye disease. They are currently researching over 40 eye conditions, funding £8million of research in 27 universities across the UK.
Healthspan’s Brand Manager Sophia Catton says: “It's great to support Fight For Sight in helping raise awareness of their charity and the research they do. We are pleased to be the lead sponsor of their annual event the Carrots Night Walk.”
Julian Jackson, Director of Development and Marketing at Fight For Sight, says: “We are delighted that Healthspan is supporting Fight For Sight’s vital work. Support like this takes us a step closer to making sight loss a thing of the past. 50% of sight loss in the UK is currently avoidable. A healthy lifestyle and diet as well as regular eye tests can go a long way to reducing visual impairment. The funds raised through this partnership will not only go towards preventing avoidable sight loss but also to address conditions for which there is currently no treatment or cure."
