Santen sponsors RNIB See Differently Awards 2022
Santen is delighted to announce that it will be sponsoring the ‘Community Contributor of the Year’ category at The Royal National Institute of Blind People (RNIB) See Differently Awards, 2022, a ceremony that recognises and celebrates those who are dedicated to improving the lives of blind and partially sighted people.
Shortlisted nominees, put forward by the public, will attend a special event on 29 March where the winners will be announced. Santen is sponsoring the Community Contributor of the Year category, awarded to an individual who consistently dedicates themselves to improving the lives of people with sight loss and who has achieved incredible results. This includes those who strive to raise awareness of issues around sight loss, break down barriers people face or goes above and beyond to empower and support people living with sight loss.
Commenting on the decision to sponsor the ‘Community Contributor of the Year’ category at the awards, Craig Wallace, General Manager of Santen UK and Ireland, and EMEA Head Commercial Operations, said: “Our mission is to help people live happier lives by having the best vision experience. While part of that is achieved through medical innovation, it’s far wider than that. For example, there is still much to do to improve inclusion and equality for those living with sight loss and improve overall eyecare quality and access. That’s why we collaborate with partners like the RNIB on activities such as this. These awards play an important role in improving eye care by celebrating and drawing attention to the brilliant work that individuals and organisations are doing to improve the lives of people living with sight loss. We’re proud to be a sponsor.”
Other categories in the awards include Campaigner of the Year, Best Social Media Impact of the Year, Team of the Year, Employer of the Year, Volunteer of the Year and the Design for Everyone Award.
