I WOULD like to say thank you to all the three million-plus players of the People's Postcode Lottery in the UK.

Thanks to your support, People's Postcode Lottery has been able to provide more than £500 million to good causes since 2005, which is just incredible.

We have been grateful to receive more than £3.9 million of this at Sightsavers, which has been indispensable in helping us to fund sight-saving work in some of the world's poorest countries.

Cataract surgery can cost as little as £30 but it has a transformational effect.

We recently worked with Gordane and Suhura, a married couple of Mozambique, who were both almost blind from cataracts. They were able to have sight-restoring surgery within a week of each other and it has turned their lives around, enabling them to return to normal day-to-day activities such as cooking, working and socialising. And, perhaps most valuable of all, they were able to see each other again. It's a win-win situation.

So, once again, a big thank you for your support. To find out more, please visit www.sightsavers.org/ppl
