Fight for Sight will host a Christmas carol concert to raise money in support of the charity’s eye research.

The festive fundraising event will be held at St Stephen Walbrook church in the City on 5 December.

Reverend Sally Muggeridge will lead the service, and Fight for Sight patron, Philip Mould, co-host of the BBC’s Fake or Fortune, has been booked as a guest speaker.

He said: “Eyesight is a precious gift and underpins the world I occupy, both professionally and personally. I’m privileged to support a charity so integrated with what I do and espouse.”

The evening will feature performances by the Imperial College Choir, as well as a reception with drinks and mince pies after the concert.

Chief executive of Fight for Sight, Michele Acton, added: “It’s the perfect opportunity to gather with friends and family at a festive event and support pioneering eye research. We’re looking forward to celebrating the start of the festive season and raising funds to help create a future everyone can see.”
