Standard Chartered Partners Liverpool On Avoidable Blindness

Standard Chartered Bank and Liverpool FC have partnered to promote Standard Chartered’s flagship community programme which works to tackle avoidable blindness.

After just four days after the global ‘World Sight Day’, the Reds will take to the Anfield pitch wearing the ‘Seeing is Believing’ logo on their shirts for the iconic fixture against Manchester United on Monday 17th October.

Although over 285 million people around the world suffer from visual impairment issues, the reality is that up to 80% of cases can be prevented or cured. This season marks the fifth year that Standard Chartered and Liverpool Football Club have come together to support ‘Seeing is Believing’.

To-date, the partnership has raised more than £250,000 through fan contributions and auction proceeds.

Following the match, the campaign will culminate in a series of charity auctions in support of ‘Seeing is Believing’.

A number of match day mementos will be up for bidding, including signed player shirts, the Captain’s armband, a pair of signed replica Jürgen Klopp glasses and a signed limited edition braille match day program, produced to commemorate the fixture.

All donations will be matched by Standard Chartered and mobilized to win the fight against avoidable blindness globally.
