Ravenscourt Park charity walk set to raise £10,000
Around the park in 80 ways to help the visually impaired
More than 30 local residents took up Action Trust for the Blind's challenge to walk, jog, run, rollerblade or find another way of getting around Ravenscourt Park during its second annual 'Around the Park in 80 Ways' fundraising event in Ravenscourt Park on Sunday 8 October.
Participants included two people who completed the 5km course on space hoppers and two others dressed as a gorilla and a labrador, riding a tandem.
The Hammersmith Grove-based charity is optimistic that funds raised at the event will reach £10,000, enabling it to continue its 'Volunteers for Visually Impaired People (VIPs)' scheme and other vital initiatives to help people in the boroughs of Hammersmith, Fulham, Kensington and Chelsea who have sight problems.
Action Trust for the Blind aims to enhance the lives of visually impaired people by encouraging and supporting them to achieve greater independence and, as a charity with a focus on the boroughs of Hammersmith, Fulham, Kensington and Chelsea, it can deliver personal and practical assistance that make a real difference to people's lives.
