Press Release   •   Jun 28, 2013 15:46 BST

Healthspan, the UK’s number one direct supplier of vitamins and supplements has today announced its new charity partnership with Fight for Sight, the UK’s leading eye research charity. For every pack of OptiVision and Retinex sold*, Healthspan will donate 5p to support Fight for Sight’s work ** (Charity Number1111438).

Healthspan’s Brand Manager Sophia Catton says:  “We are delighted to support Fight for Sight in helping raise awareness of their charity and the research they do. We are pleased to sponsor their annual event, the Carrots Night Walk.”

Julian Jackson, Director of Development and Marketing at Fight for Sight says: “We are delighted that Healthspan is supporting Fight for Sight’s vital work. Support like this takes us a step closer to making sight loss a thing of the past. 50% of sight loss in the UK is currently avoidable. A healthy lifestyle and diet as well as regular eye tests can go a long way to reducing visual impairment. The funds raised through this partnership will not only go towards preventing avoidable sight loss but also to address conditions for which there is currently no treatment or cure.”

Nearly 2 million people in the UK are living with sight loss – approximately one in 30 people. Every day around 100 people across the UK start to lose their sight which can impact on all aspects of life. Fight for Sight is the main UK charity funding pioneering research to prevent sight loss and treat eye disease. They are currently researching over 40 eye conditions, funding £8million of research in 27 universities across the UK.
