My story

[p]Hi, thanks for visiting my page.[/p][p]I’ve had the fantastic opportunity to receive a place in the Virgin London Marathon 2019, and I wanted to use the opportunity to raise funds for a charity which has benefited my own mother over the last two years.[/p][p][b]Huntingdonshire Society for the Blind[/b] is an independent, local charity dedicated to supporting people with sight impairment who live in the old county of Huntingdon. The Society provides a wide range of activities and services tailored to the individual needs of our members, their carers and families including:[/p][p]A home visit outreach service to assess needs and provide information and support.[/p][p]Identification of, and assistance with, entitlements applications.[/p][p]Monthly social meetings in St Neots, St Ives, Ramsey and Huntingdon.[/p][p]Sports and leisure group.[/p][p]Christmas party and a Summer outing.[/p][p]Subsidised and escorted annual holiday.[/p][p]Quarterly newsletters.[/p][p]Emotional Support.[/p][p]IT support and information.[/p][p]My Mum at the age of 90 developed AMD (Acute Macular Degeneration) and has suffered marked visual loss over the last two years. The reality of losing sight at an older age is challenging, but Mum has been supported by [b]Huntingdonshire Society for the Blind[/b]. She has access to their aids, lovely outreach workers who visit and help both with the practical matters and pastorally. She has also been taken to a range of social events and outings. [/p][p]They work tirelessly for people in the local community and it is for this reason I would like to use the opportunity to raise funds for such a hard working charity helping blind and partially sighted people in the area.[/p][p]Through Virgin Money Giving, you can sponsor me and donations will be quickly processed and passed to the charity. Virgin Money Giving is a not for profit organisation and will claim gift aid on a charity's behalf where the donor is eligible for this. I really appreciate all your support and I thank you for any donation[/p][p]Jane xx[/p][p][br][/p][p][br][/p][p][img]//:0" width="590" height="30[/img][/p]
