Sunglasses Day raises shade over £30

A class of children has collected £30.10 for Aniridia Network by holding a sunglasses day.

Zinovia, who has aniridia and her 8 year old classmates at Milton CofE Primary School brought in a donation and funky glasses this week, as an early celebration of international Sunglasses Day on 27 June.

Zinovia moved school last year so this was a great way to imrpove understanding of aniridia and her needs. It seems that they enjoyed it and had a good feedback from parents regarding awareness.

Our thanks go to Zinovia, mum Anastasia, the teachers and all the children and their parents for taking part and donating. It enables us do things like our befriending scheme. Zinovia already has some friends with aniridia around the world but now were helping her find one in closer to home.

See all the ways you too can support Aniridia Network.
