Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

RNIB Ayrshire Vision Appeal aims to raise £150,000 to ensure RNIB Scotland's Vision Support Service continues its work in Ayrshire. This service provides critical emotional and practical support within eye clinics, enabling people to stay independent and well at a time of potential trauma.

Without support patients, their families and their carers, can find it difficult to cope and often manifest this through feelings of depression, anger and confusion.

I know that such support makes the world of difference and I'm running from Glasgow to Edinburgh - thats 56 miles and hopefully 13 hours - to raise funds for this Appeal.

Your donation will help me stay focused and determined on this run, and I will be the first blind person to do it!

Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving – they’ll never sell them on or send unwanted emails. Once you donate, they’ll send your money directly to the charity and make sure Gift Aid is reclaimed on every eligible donation by a UK taxpayer. So it’s the most efficient way to donate - I raise more, whilst saving time and cutting costs for the charity.

So please dig deep and donate now.

Huge thanks to my guide runner George McGregor, Ken Reid and Gavin Orr, they kept me going to the end in fantastic spirits. I'm having a few days rest now!

Thank you to all my donors so far. I had an amazing run. I finished in 11 hours and 8 minutes and I am utterly delighted with the time. The first 50 miles were really enjoyable but the last 6 were tough.
