King's School 'Climbathon'Students from King's School Worcester held a successful Climbathon event in aid of Sight Concern on Sunday 30th March at Vertical Limit in Worcester.
Dozens of climbers scaled the walls in an attempt to reach the height of Mount Kilimanjaro (the final count is still due in) and everyone had a great time helping to raise money for the charity.
Our thanks go to the students who set up and managed the event and to King's School Worcester for their ongoing support.
If you would like to donate to the student's effort please visit www.everyclick.com/sightconcern-kswclimbathon.
Fire Walk 2014Congratulations to all of our firewalkers on Friday 21st February for making it such a special night down at Pavilion in the Park.
We overcame the elements and initial estimates are that nearly £7,000 has been raised which is just fantastic.
As ever a big thank you from Sight Concern Worcestershire to everyone who took part or sponsored them for their wonderful support.
Make a Will PromotioonOur big thanks go to Harrison Clark Rickerbys Solicitors for their support with a recent very successful Make a Will Promotion which has raised over £3,500 for the charity.
The February 2014 promotion saw nearly 40 people benefit from discount Wills that will ensure the safety of their finances for the future.
