CBM champion Trudie Goodwin supports CBM’S See the Way appeal

Posted on: Tuesday, March 19th, 2019

Actress and CBM Champion Trudie Goodwin (The Bill, Emmerdale) has spoken out for her support for our See the Way appeal, helping people with sight problems in the world’s poorest places.

Trudie Goodwin said: “We all want the best for our children, wherever we live in the world. As a parent, I can’t imagine the pain of witnessing your child losing their sight – and not being able to afford treatment so they can see again. That’s why I’m proud to be supporting CBM’s See the Way appeal, delivering sight-saving treatments, glasses and support to help people See the Way to a brighter future. Every penny you can spare will help – and until 14th May, the UK government will match all public donations to the appeal!” 

Trudie Goodwin, best known for her roles as Sergeant June Ackland in the Bill and Georgia Sharma in Emmerdale, has supported CBM for many years since a visit to CBM-supported eye hospital in Nigeria in 2004. The actress has personal experience of disability, living with hearing loss for many years.

The See the Way appeal will help people with sight problems in the world’s poorest places to See the Way to a brighter future. Donations will help more people access sight-saving surgery, glasses and support so they can go to school, read and write, get around safely and support themselves and their families.

Until 14th May 2019, the UK government will double all public donations to CBM’s See the Way appeal up to £2 million. Public donations will support CBM’s work preventing blindness and transforming lives wherever the need is greatest. Match funding from the UK government will improve access to sight-saving eye-health services in Rwanda.
