Blind Celebrity Masterchef contestant presents Retina UK charity appeal

Amar Latif, a semi finalist on Celebrity Masterchef, is presenting a BBC Lifeline Appeal for Retina UK, a national charity that works for those affected by inherited sight loss conditions.

The appeal was broadcast twice on the BBC in July and is now available to watch online. By telling the stories of three families who are affected by inherited sight loss conditions, the appeal raises awareness of the information and support the charity provides as well as the vital research it funds.

Amar, who lives with retinitis pigmentosa, is an active supporter of Retina UK and is an adventurer, entrepreneur and TV presenter.
