To help support eye research charity, Fight for Sight, members of the public are putting their senses to the test as part of the Feast your Eyes fundraising event.
After success in 2015, Feast your Eyes is back and encouraging people to host a dinner party with a difference throughout October. The campaign calls for people to host blindfolded food events from blindfolded breakfasts, lights-out lunch or a pitch black picnic all in aid to help fund research into eye conditions.
“We would encourage people to come together with friends, family and colleagues alike to host a fun dine in the dark event and play a part in raising vital funds for pioneering eye research. Every day 100 people in the UK start to lose their sight and nearly two million are living with sight loss. Fight for Sight fund pioneering research into a number of different eye conditions to help make sight loss a thing of the past.” Sharon Petrie, Interim Director of Fundraising at Fight for Sight.
Get involved you even get a pack complete with blindfolds, so why not challenge your friend’s taste buds!

Awesome, looks like a really cool event, lots of fun but also a very physical, active way to engage people with the reality of blindness and the issues blind people face, I'm sure the events will be a great success. Very inspiring and a great example of how innovative events can really improve the impact and visibility of a charity and donating to the cause.
