 School in a Bag 

School in a Bag is an initiative run by the Piers Simon Appeal, a charity, set up in memory of Piers who sadly lost his life in the Indian Ocean Tsunami on Boxing Day in 2004. In 2009, following a project helping orphan children in Swaziland, the School in a Bag (SIAB) initiative was born to help address the millions of children who are deprived of an opportunity to learn.

School in a Bag delivers rucksacks filled with stationery, learning resources and eating utensils to poor, orphan and disaster-affected children around the world. To date, the initiative has delivered over 87,000 SchoolBags to children in 39 countries.The cost to sponsor a SchoolBag is £20 and to ensure equality amongst the beneficiaries, the SchoolBags are all identical with brand new contents.Each SchoolBag is numbered enabling donors to track their funded SchoolBag(s) on the School in a Bag website www.schoolinabag.org.

 

Macular Society

Every day over 200 people in the UK face the shock of a diagnosis of macular disease. The Macular Society helps people adapt to life with sight loss, regain their confidence and independence and take back control of their lives. We are one of the few sight loss charities that actively fund and support medical research into macular disease. This is the research that will one day find a cure.

 

Global Sight Solutions

The avoidable blindness programmeProviding free eye care to the poor in the developing world

A Rotary inspired charity originally known as The Guildford Rotary Eye Project. Since its inception it has enabled over 50 eye hospitals, and currently oversees in excess of 100,000 cataract operations per annum. A DONATION OF JUST £5 CAN ENABLE THE BLIND TO SEE AGAIN!

Each hospital is run by Rotarians and seeks to derive its own income stream locally, thereby becoming financially freestanding. With your help, and that of The Rotary Foundation, we can help many more of the 50 million poor who cannot afford surgical eye care.For more information, or to book a speaker, go to www.globalsightsolutions.org  01483 481856
