Take on your own challenge for RSBC
Thinking about taking on a personal challenge?
Why not raise money for blind children at the same time? There are so many ways you can make a difference!
At RSBC, we want to encourage you to do your own thing to support the visually impaired young people we work with. Every pound you raise will go towards supporting these children to live a life without limits.
Previously, our supporters have taken on events such as Tough Mudder and The National Three Peaks Challenge or have an own place in a 10km or half marathon and raised money for RSBC on the side. Some have set their own hiking and cycling challenges.
It doesn’t have to be active, though. You could host a pub quiz, a dinner party, or a music night in aid of RSBC. We love to learn about the different ideas and skills our supporters have.
£506 is enough for a child and their whole family to be supported by one of our Family Engagement Workers for an entire year! However much you raise, you are helping to break down the barriers that blind children face every day.
Our fundraising team is on hand to help you every step of the way, so if you’re new to fundraising- don’t worry! We can give you lots of advice, support and resources to make sure you meet your personal target.

“As apprehensive as I was, it occurred to me a couple of weeks before the event that I am very fortunate to be able to do this sort of thing. I’m 57 but relatively fit for my age and am completely able bodied.... I decided to raise some money for a charity that helps visually impaired people, something that has long been close to my heart. I chose The Royal Society for Blind Children and started fundraising by setting up a JustGiving page and sending the link out on Facebook and to a few friends. I was quite surprised at the response I got; raising money to help young visually impaired people clearly resonated.”
