My story

[p]Hi, I am raising much needed funds for Unscene Suffolk by taking on the challenge of virtually travelling the USA’s iconic Route 66.[/p][p]I will be indoor cycling and walking with my guide dog Saffron to rack up the 2280.3 miles from Chicago, Illinois to Los Angeles, California. I have until July 4th to complete the distance and hope to raise £2280, a pound for every mile! I will be uploading picture postcards from my virtual trip so you can track my progress. [/p][p]So, why am I doing this?[/p][p]The past 11 months have made me realise several things:[/p][p]I do in fact enjoy regency TV Dramas (thank you Netflix!), my favourite Cadbury *cough cough* sharing bag is Dinky Deckers, and most importantly of all, I’m not sure how I would have coped without Unscene Suffolk.[/p][p]I, like several members of the Unscene group, live alone (many of them have also been shielding) and having weekly online singing and drama sessions, run by Unscene Suffolk, have helped so much to combat the isolation.[/p][p]Unscene recognised how much more lockdown and social distancing was going to affect the visually-impaired community that they worked quickly to move our regular sessions online and teach us all how to connect in the virtual world. Having that support and maintaining an element of pre-COVID routine was the thing that got me through the first lockdown and has kept me going ever since. We are like a family – always there for one another.[/p][p]I know that it's going to be much more challenging to get funding for our drama and singing sessions now, as so many charities and organisations are bidding for such a limited pot, and the usual fundraising events have not been able to take place. [/p][p]I honestly don’t know what I would do without Unscene Suffolk, so if I can contribute in a small way to keep sessions going by completing this challenge, that would make it all worthwhile – I am after all a bonified couch potato, so this is going to hurt![/p][p]Thank you for your donation, it is massively appreciated.[/p][p]You can find out more about the Route 66 Virtual Challenge here: https://www.myvirtualmission.com/missions/15423/route-66-virtual-challenge[/p]
