A massive THANK YOU from all of us here at DBA to all of you who had a hand in making our Bright For Sight fun run last Saturday such a glowing success – you were simply MAGNIFICENT.
You know who you are: all those frisky souls who came along to run, walk, skip and amble their way along the promenade; our motley crew of fantastic and ever-dependable volunteers; the local businesses who kindly donated bits and pieces to help make up our goody bags; and of course our mighty sponsors Parley Optometrists. We are very humbled by the support we receive year-on-year from our community and all of you should give yourselves a hearty pat on the back as you did yourselves, us and all the people we support proud.
We made just under £2,500 from the event which will go into making the lives of blind and visually impaired people in Dorset just a little bit better in whichever way we can, and of course it’s always wonderful to be able to get a nice community event going to spread a few smiles (and make a few legs ache).
‘Bright For Sight 2020: The Return of The Killer Fun Run’ is already in the works so keep your collective ear to the ground and we’ll see you all next summer (or thereabouts).
