Local Welsh charity awarded GlaxoSmithKline IMPACT Award


Sight Cymru provide services to support and build independent living skills for people with sight loss in Wales, work to raise eye health care awareness amongst children and minority communities and help to advise and support the Welsh Government eye-care strategy. The awards are designed to recognise and reward charities that are doing excellent work to improve people’s health.They have been running for 20 years and Sight Cymru is the only Welsh Charity to have won the award this year.


This year amongst over 400 applicants Sight Cymru were one of the 10 who receive an award. “Sight Cymru is committed to health and wellbeing of those with sight loss, it works hard to raise importance of eye health and its work with Wales’ diverse communities is particularly impressive” Judges commented.


The prestigious award provided Sight Cymru with £30,000 unrestricted funding and access to a Leadership programme provided by King’s Fund. There will be further programs that Sight Cymru will be able to join in order to support the organisation to grow from strength to strength.  Previous award winners cite this as the factor that enables them to grow very significantly, and provide services more effectively to more people.


Sharon Beckett, CEO of Sight Cymru said “The whole team are delighted to have received the award; it has been a real boost to everyone that is linked with the organisation from staff and volunteers to service users. The recognition and support that the award brings will help us to broaden our horizon and reach out to serve wider communities”.
