My story

[p]I jumped on 29th June 18! Read my story below and see photos.[/p][p]My new years resolution for 2018 was to do six things that scared me witless over the six months run up to my 'big 60' birthday in June. [/p][p]In March, and with five challenges already under the belt (or at least started), there was only one more challenge to go.......what to do? [/p][p]In January I started working for Devon in Sight, a local charity providing a range of practical help and advice to people living with sight loss, with the aim of promoting independence, well-being and choice. [/p][p]As Community Support Worker for Mid Devon, my role, along with an amazing team of people and our supporters, is to provide practical help and information to people who are living with visual impairment.[/p][p]My work feels like a total privilege, rather than a job, and involves working one to one, and in the community with some truly inspirational people, to promote independence for people affected by sight loss. [/p][p]Instead of receiving cards, pressies or a party to celebrate my 60th milestone, I'm inviting people to support the awesome work of Devon in Sight instead. That doesn't mean there won't be opportunity to celebrate over a cuppa and cup cake (or two or three) sometime in June or afterwards!! [/p][p]By the way, I'll be skydiving on 29th June 18......thought it best to celebrate the birthday first![/p][p]Huge thanks, to everyone for your support. [/p][p][b]Offline donations:[/b] [b][i]Huge thanks, also, to the generous customers and the hugely supportive staff at Morrison's, Crediton, who donated a fantastic £106.17 to the bucket collection on 7th and 8th June! (see photos) [/i][/b][/p][p][b]Offline donations[i]: Stuart and Pauline, good luck for tomorrow, Marg. [/i][/b][/p][p][b][i]Halina, good luck, you'll love it. [/i][/b][/p][p]Marg xxxxx [/p][p][br][/p]
