“I hadn’t heard of Fight for Sight and now I have. I would encourage everyone to get involved.”

Elizabeth Armstrong of Henry Ison, who organised the display and competition with Debbie White of Fight for Sight, said: “I am always keen to be a part of a worthy cause like the Fight for Sight awareness campaign.

“Over the last 7 weeks of having this display at my branch, I feel that this has helped go some way in promoting this great cause by making people more aware.”
