Make a Spectacle of Yourself 2016

Support us on Armed Forces Week 2016
Support us on Armed Forces Week 2016

Support our blind veterans on Armed Forces Week (20-26 June) and 'Make a Spectacle' of yourself!

We are providing 'Make a Spectacle' kits to participating opticians which include props that can be used to make displays or dress up during Armed Forces Week. Taking part in our 'Make a Spectacle' campaign shows your support and will help in raising vital funds for our charity, providing practical and emotional support to blind and vision impaired ex-Service men and women

Every store that takes part gets free tea and biscuits!

How can I get involved? 


There are three easy ways for your store to support Blind Veterans UK during Armed Forces Week 2016.


1. Donate £1 per eye test

Donate £1 from every eye test carried out during Armed Forces Week to Blind Veterans UK. 


2. Display a Blind Veterans UK collection tin in store

Place a collection tin at your till or somewhere in store for the week. 


3. 'Make a Spectacle' of yourself

Run your own local fundraising events throughout the week - we have props to help you. We have a fun 'Make a Spectacle' pack so you can take photographs during the day to encourage more people to your store to support the week.


We also encourage bake sales, fancy dress and additional in-store fundraising.


This year we're even giving prizes for the best photo and for the store that raises the most for Blind Veterans UK during Armed Forces Week. For a full information pack email
