Community News & Views | Running for vision charity

BANKING staff in Bognor Regis are going on the run for one of the town’s charities.


Employees of the Santander branch have taken on a 24-hour run challenge in aid of 4 Sight Vision Support, pictured above.


They will be running a total of 24 hours throughout this month to end in the afternoon of March 16. Customers can also take part.


One of the employees who will be joining in the Run 4 Sight, Cassie Partridge, said: “We think it’s really important to support the local community.


“We love doing this through joining them in their specific events or by inviting them in to raise awareness.


“It’s great to see and hear the real difference the charity has in our community.”


4Sight Vision Support team members will be present on the final day with its new virtual reality headset which simulates different sight loss conditions.


Supporters of the runners are welcome to go into the branch, on the corner of the London Road precinct and High Street, to encourage them or turn up in their training shoes for a time on the treadmill.


4Sight Vision Support is based in Victoria Drive and provides services for visually impaired people, their families and carers across West Sussex.


Its small number of staff and more than 300 volunteers support 32 social and activity clubs, three resource centres and other services such as home visits and low sight assessments.


They aim to tackle isolation, encourage independence and confidence and build personal health and wellbeing.
