Mike said, "We are delighted to be nominated as the official charity partner of the BigBlindWalk. Julian’s epic walk will help draw attention to the chronic underfunding of research into eye disease, sight loss and blindness in the UK. It is always surprising that, despite sight loss being feared second only to a cancer diagnosis, less than 2% of all medical research funding is directed at sight loss. The Big Blind Walk 2018 will help raise awareness of this issue and improve funding for eye research. We applaud Julian’s fantastic commitment to this challenge.”
