Story

One cold January evening, a discussion about new challenges for 2018 got a bit out of hand and the four of us signed ourselves up for the Ridgewalk to raise money for Sense.  We all enjoy walking and wanted to raise money for a worthwhile cause, so what better way to do that than to push ourselves with this physically demanding and mentally challenging event! 

The days of a stroll and a pub lunch are over; our training regime has begun in earnest.  This test of endurance will stretch us way beyond what we thought our bodies were capable of and we hope that you'll support us in our fundraising efforts.

Sense is a national charity that supports people with complex communication needs, including those who are deafblind, to be understood, connected and valued. They are there for every person who faces communication barriers in a world that relies on being able to see and hear well to be connected. Together, we can unlock barriers to communication so no one is isolated, left out or unable to fulfil their potential.

Our fundraising target is £1,680, which is the amount of money needed to provide targeted and specialist support to a child who is deafblind and their family for one year.
