Help sight charity perform a miracle!

Undated PA file photo of an eye test. A contact lens which can be surgically fitted into the eye is to be made available to patients at private clinics across the UK, it was announced, Tuesday 11 November 2003. The treatment involves implanting a thin lens between the eye's natural lens and the iris to permanently correct sight problems such as severe long and short-sightedness. See PA story HEALTH Lens.

Taking part in “Strictly Come Dancing” alongside my role in “Casualty” made this winter even busier than normal for me. I had a blast but was looking forward to spending quality time with my family.

Seeing the joy on our loved ones’ faces made Christmas truly special and I can’t imagine celebrating without seeing my son’s smile. However, many people are denied these memorable sights as they have become needlessly blind.

I am an ambassador of Sightsavers, the charity that works to prevent and cure blindness in developing countries. Sightsavers has pledged to make A Million Miracles happen in some of the world’s poorest countries and your readers have the chance to make a real difference to someone’s life.

A cataract operation takes 10 minutes and only costs Sightsavers £30.

I have been supporting Sightsavers for years and have witnessed the incredible impact of their work first hand in India. It is life-changing.

So, please help Sightsavers perform a miracle by donating whatever you can at www.millionmiracles.org
