Rutland has vision

Rutland Partners has donated £25,000 as part of a 16-month partnership with the national sight loss and disability charity, SeeAbility.

SeeAbility is running a national campaign focusing on sight tests for children in special schools. For the estimated 100,000 children who attend these schools, almost 40,000 will never have had a sight test, despite being 28 times more likely to have a sight problem than others.

The donation from Rutland will allow SeeAbility to conduct much-needed specialist sight tests for hundreds of children in selected London special schools.

Rutland announced SeeAbility as their charity partner in September and has since sponsored new initiatives such as the organisation’s national fundraising week.

Further funds have been raised by Oliver Jones, partner at Rutland, who cycled the length of the UK from Land’s End to John O’Groats, raising almost £5,000.
