Blind Ambitions are a like-minded bunch of VI’s who meet once a fortnight to discuss future trips and activities. In the short time they have been together, they have travelled to York, Seaburn, South Shields, Durham, Derwent Valley and Edinburgh on their quest to explore this fine land. They have taken part in many activities between these outings such as; 10 pin bowling, green bowling, Welly Wanging (Don’t ask) health walks and their ‘tip it’ challenge (a competition held in Seaburn amusements the idea is members start with £1.00’s worth of 2p coins and feed the machine and the winner is the person with the most coins left. Their coordinators have completed the ‘Hadrian’s challenge’ walking from Solway in Cumbria 84 miles to Wallsend over three days raising £1,700 for Blind Ambitions well done Andy, Baz, Alex and all the people who made this event such a great success. The members have raised money through raffles and stalls at a local market, all to the benefit of the group. All of the prizes are donated by individuals from the group itself.
They thank NVS for organising a room within MEA house and the Thomas Pocklington Trust who awarded the group a staggering £500.00 to assist with getting the group started.
They also wish to thank many people for their guidance and ensuring they get to and from outings safely and securely these are: Connie Morris, Bethan Cokeley, Moyra Pages, Jenny Swift, Susan Foster, Leslie Emmerson and Shaun Chapman who have worked tirelessly to keep everyone safe.
