My story

[p]On Sunday, I'll be lining up again to run the world's greatest half marathon, the #GreatNorthRun. To be honest, training for and running the London Marathon back in April was very demanding, and I've not even really thought about the GNR until now. I've just concentrated on keeping on running. If anyone would like to donate to Wakefield District Sight Aid in recognition of my efforts, we would be so grateful.[/p][p]I'm not going to lie, times are tough for us. Our full-time equivalent headcount is just over 2 staff and yet somehow we manage to support around 1,000 people living with life-changing sight loss in our community every year. Funds are harder and harder to come by. The summer has been very challenging and some days there's only been one of us in the office to man our helpline and do everything else. Luckily, my staff and volunteers are absolute legends and we get through the challenging times. But our money is running out. We have recently had to withdraw funds from our very meagre investment portfolio in order to pay our day-to-day bills like our office rent and staff salaries. Your support really does mean the world to us and it's you guys that keep us going. Thank you so much.[/p]
