Jane Cole features in Fight For Sight Christmas Appeal

Jane Cole, mother of our CSO Alex, has been helping to raise money for our chosen eye research charity Fight for Sight. She suffers from Age Related Macular Degeneration and was featured in this year’s Christmas appeal which the charity hoped would raise just over £57,000.

The leaflet, which explained what AMD is, gave details of the research FFS are sponsoring and told Jane’s personal story about the development of her condition and how it affects her life, was a huge success. The amount raised has broken £66,000 smashing the target by £9K and the even better news is that the money is still coming in!

STOP PRESS: Since writing this news item a month ago, we have today just had an update and the figure is now over £80,000 which is absolutely fantastic.

Jane has received a lovely thank you letter from FFS and we would like to add our thanks to her and Alex for all their fund raising efforts.

PolyPhotonix donate a percentage of sales from the Noctura 400 Sleep Mask (treatment for Diabetic Retinopathy) to Fight for Sight and more information about the charity and the research projects they fund can be found at
