We are pleased to report that we now have the final figure in for money raised at the Swimathon, held on 17th March 2019.
Thanks to all our amazing volunteer swimmers, who raised a magnificent £1,042.
50% of this will go directly to East Cheshire Eye Society to support the day-to-day work we do. And 50% will go to the Rotary Club of Macclesfield Castle to support their work.
OUR NEW NAME – East Cheshire Eye Society was formerly known as Macclesfield Eye Society. We changed our name in October 2018, to better reflect the geographical area that we provide services within. This will help to avoid confusion to both people who want to access our services, and will also help in our discussions with potential sponsors and supporters.
This change is to our name only, and there will be no change to the services we provide, the area we cover or the overall aim of the charity.
We are really pleased to say that all our Social Groups are running well, with meetings taking place in Macclesfield, Congleton, Wilmslow and Poynton.
Social groups are a great way to meet people and to take part in a range of activities organised specifically for people with visual impairments.
