From dancing on ice to walking on fire, Libby Clegg, Paralympic champion is calling on local thrill seekers to join her in her next challenge
Libby Clegg, Paralympic Champion has officially joined the team at Vista and is the local charity’s newly appointed Community Fundraiser. Libby has a deteriorating eye condition known as Stargardt's Macular Dystrophy disease giving her only slight peripheral vision in her left eye – she is registered blind.
Libby’s first challenge is to walk on fire for the charity on Saturday 28th May 2022, at Loughborough University. Libby is organising the firewalk and is seeking likeminded daredevils to join her.
Libby Clegg, Community Fundraiser said:
“If you’re looking for a fundraising challenge that will push your boundaries please join me - whether it’s solo, with friends, colleagues or family members, everyone over the age of 18 is welcome”.
Libby goes onto say: “I'm really excited to be working for Vista, supporting local people in Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland with sight loss and to be able to witness the direct impact the charity has in the community. The pandemic has really hit our fundraising and local support is vital to the charity in helping us to deliver our sight loss services.”
If you think you can handle the heat, sign up today. We have limited spaces available so be quick!
Lead by the experts at UK Firewalk, this is a great chance to conquer the coals and raise money to help support local people affected by sight loss.
