The Royal National Institute of Blind People (RNIB) is one of the UK’s leading sight loss charities and the largest community of blind and partially sighted people. RNIB recognises everyone’s unique experience of sight loss and offers help and support – this can be anything from practical and emotional support to campaigning for change, our reading services, and the products we offer in our online shop.
We want to ensure blind and partially sighted people are kept informed and can access the support they need.
Every day, 250 people begin to lose their sight and currently we can only reach one in three of the people who need our help the most. The organisation has a crucial role to play in creating a world where there are no barriers to people with sight loss. We want people to see differently about sight loss.
Legacy gifts are so important to RNIB and every gift we receive makes a huge difference. All of our services rely on voluntary income and a third are only possible thanks to supporters remembering RNIB in their Will.
We recognise and celebrate the generosity of those who have left legacies to RNIB through our Book of Remembrance. This is our way of saying thank you, for giving people the freedom to live their lives to the full. Every single person in our Book of Remembrance leaves a legacy that will make a significant and ongoing difference to people with sight loss, for years to come.
Legacies help to create a world that concentrates on what people with sight loss can do, not what they can’t.
