I’m running the Sheffield HALF MARATHON on 29th March 2020!
Thanks for visiting my fundraising page! Take a look at the video below for a summary of why I’m doing it, where the money goes and see how training is going.
All funds raised will go to The Partially Sighted Society
who don’t receive any statutory funding, so every donation really makes a difference.
Sight loss is obviously a topic close to my heart. It can happen to anybody and at any time. I’ve seen how hard it can be living with sight loss and it can be very difficult to come to terms with.
Seeing how sight loss effects a person prompted me to make a video about sight loss which you can see below. Peter, who features in the film, is just one of about 2 million people living in the UK with sight loss, around 360,000 of these are registered as blind or partially sighted. All of these have different conditions which effects the way each person sees in different ways.About The Partially Sighted Society
