'Take on 250'

Marking the start to a new year with an exciting new challenge, Vista launches virtual fundraiser, Take on 250.

Every day in the UK 250 people begin to lose their sight, and to help spread awareness, Vista is collaborating with (28) other sight loss charities to invite people to Take on 250.

The challenge takes place from 1 January to 31 January 2023, 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 Vista will make a big difference to people living with sight loss in Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland.

 Libby Clegg, Community Fundraiser at Vista said: “We’re excited to announce the launch of Take on 250 alongside our friends in the sight loss sector for 2023! The last two years have been a rollercoaster for everyone and particularly for blind and partially sighted people. So, let’s begin 2023 with a fresh start.

“If you’re up for a challenge, why not join us and Take on 250 for Vista to make a big difference to people living with sight loss in the UK.”
