On Saturday, these three Fundraising Superheroes Xavier, Martha and Raphaël took on the challenge of ‘The Blindfold Mile.’
Starting from the fountains by the Quay in Worcester, they walked a mile blindfolded along the river. Guided by family and friends, they navigated steps, footbridges and obstacles.
They surprised themselves with their listening skills and were able to identify the sounds the scooters, bikes, mobility scooter, babies laugh and even the sounds of people enjoying the sun in Beer Gardens.
They could tell in which direction the sun was shining and even noted the change of surfaces under their feet.
When the blindfolds came off, they were amazing at how bright everything was. Most importantly for a short period of time, they allowed themselves to experience some of the challenges that blind and partially sighted people overcome each day.
Between them they have raised over £345 to date. Well done Xavier, Martha and Raphaël! An absolute triumph!
