This weekend one of my friends is taking part in the Great Manchester Swim, hoping to raise money in support of the Royal National Institute for Blind People (RNIB). As you may or may not be aware, the RNIB is a charity that aims to prevent people from losing their sight unnecessarily and to support blind and partially sighted people so that they can live as independent lives as possible. Personally, I think that sight loss is one of the worst and most distressing ailments of man that sadly effects millions worldwide and any money that you could donate would be greatly appreciated by Charlotte and her brother, Malcolm, as well by the charity and the many individuals that it helps. If you are interested, more information is available on Charlotte's blog and you can sponsor their swim via their JustGiving page.
Obviously this is a very worthy cause and every penny counts! So please sponsor Charlotte and Malcolm for their efforts and help the RNIB to provide a better quality of life for many people less fortunate than ourselves.
