What's On

Take on 250

11 December 2021

Kickstart your year with a challenge – sight loss charities come together to launch Take on 250

Marking the start to a new year with an exciting new challenge, Kingston Association for the Blind launches virtual fundraiser, Take on 250.

Every day in the UK 250 people begin to lose their sight, and to help spread awareness, Kingston Association for the Blind is collaborating with 36 other sight loss charities to invite people to Take on 250.

The challenge takes place from 1 January to 31 January 2022, and people can take part individually or as a team.

Participants can choose any activity, whether it be baking, knitting, running, walking, or dancing and complete 250 minutes, 250 laps, or 250 repetitions – the choice is up to the individual or team, including their fundraising target.

Funds raised for Kingston Association for the Blind will be spent on expanding the service to blind and partially sighted persons living in the Royal Borough of Kingston.

Mariza Jurgens, Charity Manager, Quote: “We’re excited to announce the launch of Take on 250 alongside our friends in the sight loss sector for 2022! The last two years have been a rollercoaster for everyone and particularly for blind and partially sighted people. So, let’s begin 2022 with a fresh start.

“If you’re up for a challenge, why not join us and Take on 250 for Kingston Association for the Blind to make a big difference to people living with sight loss in the UK.”
