Supporter walked 140 miles to raise money for us
James, who lives near to our Centre of Wellbeing in Llandudno, set off from his home address on Sunday September 4 to complete the entire Anglesey coastal path in nine days.
He always knew that if he took on a challenge for charity it would be in support of our blind veterans.
“Earlier this year I was sat in a local pub with my dad and there was a blind veteran sat beside us who was staying at the charity’s centre in the town. He told us his story, what he had been through, and how Blind Veterans UK had helped him.
“I was mesmerised and knew right then that I would take on a challenge to raise money for the charity, to show them my support, and to help them to provide rehabilitation to even more veterans."
“My workplace, Briggs Equipment, parent company of local Llandudno firm Gwynedd Forklifts, has offered to not only match my fundraising but to triple it which is incredible and will make such a huge difference to many lives.
“Around day three of my challenge tiredness kicked in and the blisters began to show but knowing I was raising money for such a fantastic charity kept me going. I didn't want to let anyone down.”
