Have your say

I would like to thank all of you that have supported the AyeEye Charity. A true community effort emerged.

One major and pivotal role in our joint success has to be recognised and is the Halifax Courier. We thank you for the help and exposure from day one and a particular thank you must go to reporter Ruth Mosalski who has followed our progress through thick and thin.

Only when you have travelled the amazing journey that AyeEye has, can you fully appreciate the impact the local paper has had on our Charity outcome.

AyeEye has received exposure free of charge as the Courier’s donation to the Charity. I thank Tim Robinson, the Editor, for making this possible for us.

At present local businesses are being encouraged to come forward and share information via the Halifax Courier of their successes and struggles. I cannot overstate the need for all of us to shop locally, invest locally and subscribe to a daily dose of the Halifax Courier.

One thing that has become perfectly clear to me is that all charitable bodies are struggling for new members. Round Table, Rotary and Freemasons are all looking for a younger membership. They do amazing work but need more people.

Finally, my sincere and grateful thank you to Mr Nitin Anand and the Eye Clinic for giving me my eyesight back. The majority of my supporters came from Calderdale and Huddersfield Glaucoma sufferers and their families who were all grateful patients of Mr Nitin Anand. A man who has made a difference to so many individuals.

Anyone wishing to thank their Opthalmologist or wishing to put something back can do so by donating to the Opthalmic Charitable Funds at the NHS. This is where AyeEye will place any monies left over from the purchase of our laser.

You can still donate to AyeEye until 31st December 2011. Place your donation at the Elland and Halifax Barclays Banks into the AyeEye account.

Thank you very much everyone it has been a privilege and an honour to have met so many wonderful people.
