Get Involved


OcuMel UK is solely reliant on the generosity of its members and supporters. Money raised goes towards the cost of providing our staff, helpline and awareness campaign materials.

We are extremely grateful to everyone who has raised funds for us in the past.  Without you, we quite literally wouldn’t be here today.

If you would like to support our work, there are many ways you can do so.

Collection Tins

Homing one of our collection tins, is one of the easiest ways you can help us. Our aim is for all of our 75 tins to be placed in a local shop or workplace so that loose change can be collected and emptied every month or so.

If you would like to help us in this way, please order the required number of collection tins here or ring us on 01753 357771 so we can send you everything you’ll need.

You can help us by taking part in an organised event, or even holding your own.

We can provide you with awareness material and merchandise, and we can also help you publicise your event.

Please use the button below to set up your own fundraising page through Virgin Money Giving; to make it easier for your friends and family to support you.

Remember to let us know what you are planning.  If you need any help, ideas and support, please email our supporter care officer.

Please join us in raising awareness and funds on the 19th May, Eye Patch Day.
