Fundraising

Supporting MySight York can be fun, easy, exciting and worthwhile. We need £150,000 a year to provide the support that blind and partially sighted people rely on. Here are some of the ways in which you can help us to raise it.

You can make a one-off donation, a regular donation through your bank, do an event of your own, or join one of ours. Support from businesses and employees makes a big difference.

 

We receive donations from trusts and companies, such as BGL, take part in the Jane Tomlinson 10k run, enter a team in the York Rotary Dragon Boat Race and we have even had our fundraisers walk over hot coals or jump out of an aeroplane for us!

 

We need volunteers and supporters to empty our pink elephants, help us at street and store collections or events, organise concerts or sales, donate birthday gifts or give us items to sell.

 

Some people choose to leave us a gift in their will.  This costs them nothing in their lifetime, but makes a lasting difference to us. Don’t forget our special offer via Remember a Charity in your Will and Co-Op legal services.

To make a donation please click the pink button on the right OR

Donate by text by sending the word MYSIGHT to 70085 to donate £3 a month.

Texts cost £3 plus two standard rate messages.

To make a single donation of £3 – which will, for example, support our staff in keeping in touch with those having to isolate at the moment due to COVID-19 – please text MYSIGHT 3 to 70490. (Changing the number after the word, e.g. MYSIGHT 20 to 70490 increases the donation to £20 etc.)

Thank you for your support.
