About Sound for Sight


Jeremy Vine and Laura Westcott

Sound for Sight is a registered charity that raises funds and awareness for preventable or curable sight loss conditions through the power of live music. 

Sound for Sight was created by Laura Westcott, the Founder of music agency Soundcheque and mental health non-profit Music for Mental Wealth after discovering her friend was diagnosed with the degenerative retinal disease Retinitis Pigementosa. 

Laura spent one week “blind” wearing pinhole vision glasses to raise awareness for sight loss conditions and finished her challenge with a concert held on World Sight Day hosted by TV and Radio Presenter, Jeremy Vine. 

The Sound for Sight audience can wear pin hole vision glasses to get a brief insight into living with sight loss, and to enhance their hearing whilst being taken on a sensory journey from established and emerging artists.
