Woman wearing sunglassesThe days are getting longer here in Dubai and the sunshine is more intense than usual.  A quick reminder that it is a very good idea to protect your eyes from the sun.  UV rays don’t only cause damage to our skin, they could be a factor in Age-related Macular Degeneration, cataracts and other eye diseases.  Click here for more information from the RNIB about protecting your eyes from the harmful effects of the sun.

Your stamps help the RNIB carry on their vital work so please keep them coming.  Thanks to everyone who has sent them to me.  I’ve had envelopes containing 3 stamps and, this week, another parcel with a huge collection.  I’ll be sending another batch off in no time at this rate.  Volunteer in Abu Dhabi are doing a great job of collecting in the capital too.  So remember, in the summertime, save your stamps and slip on your shades.
