My story

[p]My name is Tony from southwest England. I’m totally blind and severely deaf in both ears. I’ve been battling against obstacles all my life! I’m about to embark upon my biggest challenge to date- hike the famous Inca Trail of Machu Picchu in Peru! Four days of serious hiking at altitude! My reason for undertaking this? Not only because it is a magnificent adventure and test of my own body and fitness, but more importantly, to raise money for Galloways Society for the Blind. A charity based in Preston England, helping and supporting blind and visually impaired people throughout the Lancashire region to live their lives as independently as possible.[/p][p]Please could you help me reach my goal of £3,850? One half will go to Galloways so they can continue their great community work of supporting blind and visually impaired people, whilst the other half is to fund my trip to Machu Pichu, the hike and challenge of a lifetime.[/p][p]I’ve been fortunate enough to travel to over 120 countries alone and visit all seven world continents, despite being totally blind and severely deaf. By hiking the famous Inca Trail of Peru I want to further illustrate and highlight that people can take on challenges and achieve their goals despite living with disabilities.[/p][p]Living with sight loss is not easy; people often become isolated and cut off from society, lose friends and family members. They can find it difficult to be accepted by society and often struggle to adapt to an ever changing world. That’s why supporting me and raising money for Galloways is so important.[/p][p]They need to raise £1 million annually to survive as a charity and continue their amazing work.[/p][p]So please give as much as you can and help me achieve both my goals of raising money for Galloways and helping me get to Peru and hiking to Machu Picchu.[/p][p]You can read more about me and my travels at:[/p][p][url=http://www.tonythetraveller.com]www.tonythetraveller.com[/url][/p][p]If you wish to learn more about Galloways Society for the Blind and their amazing work visit:[/p][p][url=http://%0dwww.galloways.org.uk%0d]www.galloways.org.uk[/url][/p][p][br][/p]
