 New stretch target


Join us in supporting our group of blind and visually impaired adults in Newcastle, as we strive to create inclusive social activities and events for our community. We are entirely self-funded, and our dedicated 55 year old member, Baz Akrigg, is courageously taking on his first marathon to help raise crucial funds. Every contribution ensures that we can continue empowering and uniting visually impaired individuals across the North East. Together, let’s make a difference.

Over £200 million has been raised from our crowd to support the projects they love! Plus tens of millions more unlocked by our partners.
