Big Give Christmas Challenge 2018

One donation, twice the impact.

It’s back! Once again, Retina UK is participating in the Big Give Christmas Challenge. This year we aim to raise even more money to fund the wide range of pioneering research we are currently funding, and have set an ambitious target of £30,000!

Big Give Christmas Challenge 2018

What happens during the Christmas Challenge?

Donations made to the project online on the Big Give Christmas Challenge website between 12pm on Tuesday 27th November and 12pm on Tuesday 4th December will be doubled at no additional cost to our supporters.* Donations are doubled from a match funding pot provided by some amazing funders and supporters, as well as our Big Give Christmas Challenge Champion.

“My research is so important because it paves the way for the treatments of the future.”

Jing Yu, bioinformatician

What do I need to do?

  • Make a note in your diary for 12pm on 27 November
  • Make your donation online here: between that time and 12pm on 4 December
  • Spread the word and the link amongst friends and family, and encourage them to donate during the campaign too
  • Follow us on social media for updates, videos and more.

If you want to donate to our work this festive season this is the way to do it!  Your contribution will go twice as far, and will help us drive progress towards effective treatments for inherited sight loss.

If you have any questions about the campaign or the project, or have any difficulty accessing the website to make your donation, please contact Deborah Laing, Senior Fundraising Manager, on 01280 815900 or email

Thank you so much for your support!
