The wife of the late eye surgeon Leonard Teye-Botchway helped launch a fundraising campaign for a charity that helps the blind.

Ronita Teye-Botchway purchased the first tag of Vision Bermuda’s annual tag day, which will take place tomorrow.

Proceeds from the event will go towards the charity, formerly called Bermuda Society for the Blind, which supports programmes and services for people with vision impairment.

Dr Teye-Botchway, who pioneered ophthalmology in Bermuda, died in September.
