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
