MARKING the start to a new year with an exciting new challenge, Coventry Resource Centre for the Blind has launched a virtual fundraiser, Take on 250.

The challenge takes place from 1 January to 31 January 2022, and people can take part individually or as a team.
Participants can choose any activity, whether it be baking, knitting, running, walking, or dancing and complete 250 minutes, 250 laps, or 250 repetitions – the choice is up to the individual or team, including their fundraising target.
Funds raised for CRCB will Coventry Resource Centre for the Blind (CRCB) will allow the Earlsdon-based charity to help visually impaired people from all over the city to live better with sight loss.
Hugh Sorrill, General Manager said: “We’re excited to announce the launch of Take on 250 alongside our friends in the sight loss sector for 2022!
“The last two years have been a rollercoaster for everyone and particularly for blind and partially sighted people. So, let’s begin 2022 with a fresh start.
“If you’re up for a challenge, why not join us and Take on 250 for CRCB to make a big difference to people living with sight loss in Coventry and the UK.”
