The Nystagmus Network relies entirely on fundraising, donations, membership subscriptions and gifts in wills to continue our work. Whether you’re running a marathon, holding a cake sale, or anything in between, we’ll be here every step of the way to support you to raise as much money and awareness of nystagmus as possible.
With marathons, half marathons, 10k and 5k runs postponed, there’s still lots of opportunity to take part in virtual runs and challenges right now.
The Local Landmarks Challenge is a solo, virtual run, around your local landmark. That could be anything from your local church, castle, park, statue or even post-box. You decide the distance. You even get a medal at the end!
Sign yourself up to take part and then set up your Justgiving page to collect your sponsorship for the Nystagmus Network.
Stay safe and healthy and enjoy your run!

Calling all golfers
Is it your turn to take on the captaincy of your club this year? Could you nominate the Nystagmus Network as your captain’s charity? That’s just what Mike did. He raised lots of money for the charity, created loads of awareness of the condition and had a fabulous time organising all the events with fellow golfers, friends and family. If you could support us, too, please let us know.
Support from the Nystagmus Network
If you can guarantee that you’ll raise at least £100 through sponsorship, we’ll send you a Nystagmus Network running vest. For event organisers we have T-shirts. Just let us know what size you need. We’ll also send you a supply of wristbands for your sponsors. For smaller events we have flyers, sponsor forms and collecting tins.
Promoting your event
We suggest that our fundraisers set up a Justgiving page. It’s really easy to do. You just need to add your story and photo to the Nystagmus Network details. Then we can publicise your fundraising event across our social media to make sure you reach lots of supporters. Using Justgiving means that the Nystagmus Network can collect an extra 25% in Gift Aid automatically on all eligible donations to boost your total even more.
Sending in the money raised
If you use Justgiving you don’t need to do anything as the money is paid directly to us. If you have cash or a cheque to pay in, please get in touch here and we’ll send you our bank details. Alternatively you can make a one-off donation through CAFDonate, or you can post a cheque to:
Nystagmus Network, 15 Robinia Green, Southampton, SO16 8EQ
Get in touch
If you’d like to hold an event for the Nystagmus Network please get in touch here so we can help you with your fundraising. Your hard work will mean that we can continue to support the nystagmus community, provide information, raise awareness and fund research.
