Fundraising is a great way for volunteers to support VAO. Many will organise their own fundraising events, from sponsored walks and fun runs to virtual quiz nights and even sky-dives! To find out more about fundraising please click here.
Volunteers who work in practices or stores can become VAO champions. As a champion you bring VAO's mission to your place of work.
You could for example: have awareness raising days in store, hold bake sales and organise regular donation collections when making free glasses repairs for customers.
