Sense for Deafblind People
'Wild Weekend' 13th-15th July 2012
Sense is the leading national charity for the deafblind people of England, Wales and Northern Ireland. Their amazing work in supporting and campaigning, for both children and adults that are deafblind, has been ongoing for 50 years now - yet unfortunately the number of those without sight and hearing in the UK continues to grow. By 2030, the tragic total of deafblind people will rise by an astounding 60%, from 356,000 to 570,000. Though this rise may be unpreventable, Sense can and has made a difference, selflessly providing specialist information, advice and services for deafblind people and their families.
Now Sense urges you to make a difference. This Summer, Sense is hosting their own 'Wild West Weekend' taking place from 13th-15th July 2012. What better way to get into the mood for the Olympics 2012 than by competing in exciting outdoor activities and raising money for a worthy cause at the same time! Sense is appealing to kindhearted fundraisers to apply and get down to the event at Castleton, the Peak District. Feel free to take part in groups or even on your own if you feel like doing something bold and benevolent! Registration for a team of four is just £300, which covers 15 fun-packed outdoor activities, all the necessary equipment, two nights stay camping and a Saturday night party with food!
