If you have remembered the National Eye Research Centre in your Will

You do not need to take any action, but you may find the following points helpful:

  • National Eye Research Centre is the previous name of Sight Research UK.
  • Depending on when you drafted your Will (before or after April 2014), either of these Registered Charity numbers may be listed in your Will: 1156134 or 294087.
  • In 2014, the charity was converted into a Charitable Incorporated Organisation and was registered with the Charity Commission with Registered Charity Number 1156134.
  • In 2020, we merged the original charity (294087) into the Charitable Incorporated Organisation with Registered Charity Number 1156134. 
  • In 2021, we have changed the name of the charity from National Eye Research Centre to Sight Research UK.
  • Sight Research UK has the same Registered Charity Number (1156134).
  • Any gifts in Wills left to the National Eye Research Centre (either to 294087 or 1156134) will automatically be received by Sight Research UK (1156134). 
  • There is no need for you to amend your Will or even notify your solicitor.
