Results

The auction received huge support from celebrities who sent in their specs (more than 120 pairs were generously donated to the appeal), and from supporters wanting to get their hands on a special pair of glasses whilst supporting our work.

More than 50 celebrities took part, including actress Meryl Streep, Beatle Ringo Starr, pop sensations will.i.am and Rita Ora, Harry Potter stars Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson and Robbie Coltrane and style icons Kate Moss and Vivienne Westwood.

The auction was incredibly successful, raising over £10,000 to allow us to continue to carry out eye tests in some of the world’s poorest places and distribute glasses to those that need them.
