Thank you also to Jeff, Miriam and Buddy the Dog for raising funds through a Fundraising Update Sight Advice Magazine – Autumn 2018 Page 21 sponsored walk in the Lune Valley.
Also to our volunteer, John Wilkinson, who held his 60th birthday celebrations and raised nearly £500 for Sight Advice. We would also like to thank BenchMarx Joinery and The Bath House for providing wonderful goodie bags at our Mamma Mia 2 event.
