Earlier this year (in July) we ran a campaign for the Southampton based charity Gift of Sight.
The Gift of Sight appeal funds world class and life-changing research into the prevention and treatment of blindness in adults and infants. The team carries out their research at Southampton General Hospital with the aim to help those that suffer from macular degeneration, nystagmus, inherited retinal disease, glaucoma and more.
To raise funds for the charity we pledged that we would donate £2 from every OSKA Series2-V2 pressure care mattress sold during the month.
Over the course of July, we managed to raise £128 for The Gift of Sight.
To say thank you, The Gift of Sight invited us to Southampton General Hospital on an extraordinary special tour around their high-tech labs where they would discuss how much every penny means to the charity. The scientists that are working on treatments showed and described to us their average day ranging from cutting eye tissue with an incredibly precise slicing machine to, growing artificial cells in extremely controlled environments.
The Gift of Sight is a great cause and the tour proved just how much the donation could help change lives.
Well done to the team and a huge thank you to all of those who were involved, providing care where it matters most.
