Supporting Us


We provide a lifeline for people in Warrington coming to terms with losing their sight. By remembering us in your will you can ensure that this vital help continues in the future. We rely heavily on the generosity of local people to fund our core services.


So, once you’ve remembered your loved ones, please consider remembering Warrington VIP too. Leaving VIP a gift in your will, however large or small, will help to ensure that we continue to provide essential support services to people with sight loss and visual impairment.

Here are examples of different kinds of gifts
you can make in your will:

The remainder of your estate after you have provided for your friends and family

An amount of money specified in your will, e.g. £1000

A special gift, e.g. an antique, a stamp collection or even property or shares
