Marking the start to a new year with an exciting new challenge, Wiltshire Sight launches virtual fundraiser, Take on 250.

Every day in the UK 250 people begin to lose their sight, and to help spread awareness, Wiltshire Sight is collaborating with 28 other sight loss charities to invite people to Take on 250.

The challenge takes place from 1 January to 31 January 2022, and people can take part individually or as a team.

Participants can choose any activity, whether it be baking, knitting, running, walking, or dancing and complete 250 minutes, 250 laps, or 250 repetitions – the choice is up to the individual or team, including their fundraising target.

Funds raised for Wiltshire Sight will help us with our work out in the community with those experiencing sight loss. As a small independent charity, we receive no statutory funding for our core work and rely on the generosity of our supporters. As a result, every penny raised by our supporters really does make a big difference to the services we can offer.

Jen Hall (Fundraiser), “We’re excited to announce the launch of Take on 250 alongside our friends in the sight loss sector for 2022! The last two years have been a rollercoaster for everyone and particularly for blind and partially sighted people. So, let’s begin 2022 with a fresh start.

“If you’re up for a challenge, why not join us and Take on 250 for Wiltshire Sight  to make a big difference to people living with sight loss in the UK.”

This challenge is also being undertaken by our partner charity, Sight Support West of England. For more information or how to sign up to the virtual fundraiser for free, please visit:
