A Bognor-based charity says it is thrilled to be re-starting public fundraising events, beginning with a Wellbeing Walk in June.
Like many organisations, 4Sight Vision Support has experienced an incredibly challenging year during the pandemic.
The charity, which provides free advice and support to blind and sight impaired residents throughout West Sussex, relies on donations to deliver its services to over 2,000 people each year.
While fundraising has been heavily impacted, 4Sight Vision Support has managed to find new and innovative ways of providing services to members, helping people with sight loss to stay active and independent and feel less isolated.
Now, 4Sight Vision Support has announced the resumption of its public fundraising events, and is inviting people to sign up for its Wellbeing Walk taking place on Saturday 26th June 2021.
Taking place on the Angmering Park Private Estate, the walk will kick-start fundraising activities and launch celebrations for the charity’s 100th anniversary year.
Norman Boyland, chair of trustees, commented: “We are truly grateful to everyone who has continued to support us during the pandemic and are delighted to resume our public fundraising activities with what promises to be a wonderful event in a beautiful location not normally open to the public.
“We invite everyone to sign up and join us on the day.”
The walk will take participants on an undulating 5 mile trail following tracks, paths and some cross-country areas.
Entry costs £10 for adults and £5 for children aged over 3 (under 3s are free).
The entry fee includes refreshments, a medal and wellbeing activities along the route. There is a special event T-shirt also available for £10.
As the entrance fee covers the costs of putting on the event, participants are encouraged to pledge £50 in sponsorship to support the vital work of 4Sight Vision Support.
The walk will go ahead subject to government guidance at the time.
