As an ambassador of Sightsavers, the charity that works to prevent and cure blindness in developing countries, I would love Mail readers to make a real difference to someone’s life by funding a life-changing operation.

Sightsavers has pledged to make A Million Miracles happen in some of the world’s poorest countries, by raising enough money to fund one million sight-restoring operations.

A cataract operation, that takes around 10 minutes and costs Sightsavers just £30, could save someone from a future of blindness.

I have been supporting Sightsavers for many years and have seen first-hand in Kenya how a simple eye operation can totally transform someone’s life.

I would encourage readers to help Sightsavers perform a Christmas miracle by donating £30, or whatever they can, and give the gift of sight at millionmiracles.org.
