Kerry completes the Reading Half Marathon
Brand Tastic 25th May 2017
A big ‘well done’ from us to our Senior HR Advisor Kerry on completing the Reading Half Marathon this weekend!
Kerry raised £950 for Reading Association for the Blind (RAB) which will be used towards days out for the service users as well as contributing towards the design of a new garden for the charity.
Reading Association for the Blind supports the sight impaired people of Reading. Their objective has been to enable sight impaired people to live full and active lives by providing the opportunity to take part in activities that they may otherwise not be able to, such as visiting a social club, rambling, taking part in a craft club, social outings, theatre trips, sport, holidays, learning new skills such as IT or accessing support from the home visiting service. People suffering from sight impairment often suffer from isolation and social exclusion and we do all we can to promote social interaction and inclusion in society. In many cases, it can be difficult for them to leave their homes, to get out and meet people, so the service they provide is vital for physical and mental wellbeing. Older people with sight loss are almost three times more likely to experience depression than people with good vision.
A very worthy cause…Well done Kerry!
