Take A Running Jump To Help Blind Kids

October 8, 2005


Saturday 15th October is a day for the daring.

The National Blind Children’s Society are looking for a team of Gasheads to join their fundraiser on top of the Evening Post builing next Saturday.

They are giving the opportunity to see Bristol from a different perspective to celebrate world sight day. They are looking for individuals or a group to get together to take part in this sponsored abseil. Each individual needs to have £100 sponsorship, though this may be flexible, to take part. The charity is inviting people from Bristol to take part in this event which presents a rare opportunity and a daring challenge. Go along and join Glen Catley the former super middleweight European champion boxer. You could not only be acheiving one of your goals, but also be helping kids acheive theirs. 

Based in Highbridge Somerset, the NBCS supports children with visual impairment and their families. Their mission is to enable blind and partially sighted children to acheive their educational and recreational goals.

This national charity was formed in Somerset some 10 years ago this year and still has the national head quarters in Somerset, meaning a dual celebration of world sight day and their 10 year anniversary.

This represents a rare chance to abseil off the top of one of Bristol’s landmarks, so if you fancy it, give them a call.

To find out more details about the event and receive a registration form please contact  [email protected] or telephone Natalie on 01278 764777.

The NBCS would like to thank the Evening Post and Press for their help in allowing this event to take place.

Any Gasheads taking place, please let us know and we will come along and photograph you and talk to you about your experience.
