Make a Will PromotionOur 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.

Skydivers Take Leap of Faith!On Sunday 27th July, four daring fundraisers faced the thrilling challenge of taking part in a skydive, in aid of Sight Concern Worcestershire, the county charity for the blind and partially sighted.
Hannah Bishop and Shirley Sheridan, both users of the charity and charity supporter Jess Thomas leapt from over 10,000 feet as a part of an exhilarating tandem skydive in Swindon. Through taking part in a skydive, reaching dizzying speeds as high as 120mph, the brave participants faced their fears to help others overcome the fear of sight loss.
The participants each raised £395 in sponsorship, to help blind and partially sighted people in Worcestershire live independent and fulfilling lives.
