One of RSBC’s fantastic Trustees is walking a third of a million steps in April to raise funds for the charity.
John Miller is fundraising through the Worshipful Company of Cordwainers, where he was the former Clerk, and who named RSBC their 2020-21 charity of the year after over 70 years of amazing support.
The Cordwainers are raising funds in support of the RSBC’s new Life Without Limits Centre – the charity’s hub which will open later this year and from which the charity will provide support to blind and partially sighted children, young people and their families.
John is marking the partnership by taking on a post-lockdown steps challenge.
“I am extremely honoured to be a Trustee for RSBC and proud that we are Cordwainers’ charity of the year. As part of my role, I see first-hand the impact RSBC makes in its work with vision impaired children and young people,” says John.
“Like a lot of people, I found myself less active during the recent lockdown and colder months. I wanted to set a steps challenge to get fitter and raise funds for RSBC. 333,333 steps are a lot but I’m halfway through already and feeling the difference!”
John has set a £1,500 fundraising target for his April walking challenge. You can donate via his JustGiving page.
