Community Events


Fundraisers in the community are essential to Vision Ireland. We rely heavily on individuals, groups and organisations who are willing to get behind an idea, rally the troops and raise funds to help the approximate 55,000 people in Ireland living with sight loss.

There are so many fantastic ways you, your family, friends, colleagues can have fun and raise money for Vision Ireland.
