OUR FUNDRAISING EVENT 2017

SVIWG FUNDRAISING CHALLENGE 2017... Sheffield Round Walk
This year on Saturday 17th June a band of some 20 walkers, visually impaired and their guides, tackled the 15+ miles of the Sheffield Round Walk. We are raising money for Sheffield Royal Society for the Blind and SVIWG. This was tough challenge for the Group. Not only is the distance twice what we would normally walk in a day, it is also tough going in places because of the hilly nature of Sheffield's terrain. Those participating are seeking sponsorship for the challenge. Please be generous in this very worthy cause. You can sponsor individual walkers or you can donate on line at: https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/sviwgsheffieldroundwalk17. There is a link on SRSB website. Thank you for your support.

The Group recently visited the Royal Armouries in Leeds where Ken Bower couldn't resist dressing up in fighting armour. Fortunately, no one was hurt in the filming of this event. Although, Ken's guide dog Barley was last seen heading home at considerable speed towards Sheffield! Photographer Norman - February 2017

Saturday 9th July. In hindsight a weekend day is not the best. Hundreds of people came through the doors, however a large percentage were families with young children.

There was lots of interest shown, and all 20 copies of SVIWG's July Newsletter were taken as well as a lot of the new leaflets we had printed. So you never know - a new face may appear on one of our organised walks, we will see.

Many Many thanks to Norman, Ken, Barley (the guide dog who was the main attraction), Paul, Eric and Joe, who lent their support. It was much appreciated, thank you all. David Cadet.

A big thanks to David who funded this himself much appreciated. Photo thanks to Jo Fagan
