                                              Walking for Peggy

                                                2nd June 2023 

                 11am from Shoreham Beach to Ardington Hotel Worthing

                                             (almost five miles) 

My name is Anthony ( known as ‘ Ant’ ) and I am now 97 years

Recently my partner and love of my life Peggy , died of
dementia. This devastating illness, and long journey over many years, was made
significantly worse by going blind… a double blow for Peggy,  both being in the dark and at the same time
not knowing where you are or being able to recognise people because you are
both blind and loosing your memory.

Our local charity 4Sight helped us through these dreadful
five years, by providing us with support through visits, assessments and
equipment. This helped Peggy stay in her beloved home, for as long as she could,
and without their incredible support, this awful situation would have been a
lot worse.

A loss of vision changes peoples lives, impacting their
ability to remain independent. The work that 4Sight undertakes was vital to
Peggy and myself to help keep her in her home, as well as providing community
events to meet people in similar situations, which helped with this lonely

I am lucky that at 97 I can still walk and I would therefore
like to thank 4Sight through raising much needed funds to help others, by walking
from  Riverside Road, Shoreham Beach to
the Ardington Hotel in Worthing …nearly five miles , on the 2nd June
at 11am. At my age this will take me a few hours.

Please support the fantastic work 4Sight undertake by
sponsoring me for the walk .

Thank you
