The date for this year’s Geranium event Metropolitan Day on Friday 18th May 2018.
Staff and volunteers from the Greater London Fund for the Blind – GLFB will be in and around London stations collecting funds for vital services for visually impaired people.
Do stop by and say hello to our friendly collectors. If you’re able, please donate – it would be most appreciated! We will gladly take your old pound coins and five-pound notes too!
You can also support our work with a donation online.
Making a direct impact
In 2016 commuters and local residents donated over £13,000 to our Geranium Day appeal. This tremendous generosity is enabling us to make a direct impact on the lives of people living with sight loss.
For example, raising the same amount this year would help pay for 3,250 hot meals at local GLFB-funded centres or cover the cost of transport for medical appointments for 2,167 visually impaired people. So do drop a coin or two if you get the chance!
Speaking to volunteer collectors and supporters, Andrew Banfield, GLFB collections manager said: “Geranium Day is more than just a great opportunity to raise funds for visually impaired people – it is also a day of solidarity. All the GLFB member charities, staff and volunteers come together in pursuit of a single goal”.
You can also support our work with a donation online. Whatever you are able to give to our Geranium Day appeal, your gift will enable us to fund some fantastic projects and much-needed services for people who urgently need our support.
Your generosity will help make a difference to the lives of people affected by sight loss. Thank you in advance for whatever you are able to give.
