Every day in the UK 250 people begin to lose their sight, and to help spread awareness, Vision Support is collaborating with 36 other sight loss charities to invite people to Take on 250.

The challenge takes place from 1st January to the 31st of 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.


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