Leave a Legacy

If you would like to support the CBS and it mission to maximise the personal resources and ability of people in the ACT and our local region whose lives are affected by blindness or low vision you can leave a bequest in your will.

It may not be something you have often or ever thought about but a bequest can significantly help hundreds of people.  Bequests can be made as a donation, property ownership, or a percentage of your remaining estate.  Please contact us if you have any questions.

Annual Street Appeal

CBS seeks your participation in the CBD annual Street Appeal which takes place in the beginning of May each year.  CBS has its first Button Day Appeal, which is now the Street Appeal, in 1979.

Over the years, members of Government Departments have participated in our Street Appeal and have collected donations in and around their buildings on the day of the Appeal.  CBS members and volunteers in the community as well as high school students also assist in collecting donations at various shopping centres throughout the ACT.

The role of CBS is to help our clients to manage the effects of blindness and to encourage them to be fully participating members of the community.  All funds raised will be put to very good use in helping more than 550 people in the ACT to manage the effects of blindness. If you are a public spirited person and would be willing to assist please contact us on (02) 6247 4580 or through email by clicking the following link,
