Vision charity The Childhood Eye Cancer Trust (CHECT) has paid tribute to Vision Express after its donations from the multiple reached £600,000.
Gathered over a period of eight years, the funds had been used to help patients diagnosed with retinoblastoma (Rb).
Fundraising challenges included an endurance cycling event called Ride4Sight, skydives, marathons, raffles and an annual Christmas quiz.
CHECT chief executive Patrick Tonks said: ‘I was amazed when I first found out the total amount raised. We really wouldn’t have been able to help so many children and families over the last eight years without Vision Express’ support - fewer people would be aware of the signs and symptoms of Rb and so it would be more difficult for some people to get an early diagnosis.’
