My story

[p]Welcome to my fundraising page, I will be running in the Virgin London Marathon this October, to raise money for Blindcare. This is a charity that supports people struggling with sight loss, something which has affected me personally. Blindcare is a partner charity of the Royal National College for the Blind (RNC), a specialist residential FE college for young people with VI, based in Herefordshire. [/p][p]I enrolled at the RNC back in September 2018, after I had been unexpectedly diagnosed with a degenerative eye disease a few years prior. During my time at the RNC, I achieved the grades I needed to accept a place at the University of Southampton, where I am now studying. [/p][p]I have always enjoyed running leisurely, however thanks to the support and training I received in Herefordshire I was able to take my running up a few notches, so now, I am taking this opportunity to give something back to the place which helped pick me up when I was at my lowest. [/p][p]I was originally training for the 2020 London Marathon which, because of the pandemic, was postponed. I am thrilled to announce, I will finally be running the London Marathon this October 3rd, alongside Tim Broome. Those who know me from a distance, are probably unaware of my sight loss, especially since I usually run and train independently. However, because the marathon will be a hectic and tiresome event, I am pleased to be accompanied by my guide Tim, to take some of the pressure of me. [/p][p]I hope to raise as much money as possible for Blindcare because one of its main partners is the RNC where I studied. In 2018 Ofsted judged the college as 'Outstanding' in all areas of its social care. I can say with confidence, I would not have been able to reach the place I am at now, without the support of everyone at RNC. [/p][p]So if you can, please donate![/p][p]Thank you! [/p]
