Royal Society for Blind Children – Volunteer Cheerer (London Marathon 2018)

Details of the Charity:

The Royal Society for Blind Children (RSBC) believe in a better life for blind children. No child in the UK should grow up to be poor or lonely just because they are blind. The RSBC are on a mission to make sure every single blind child has the self-belief and skills to fulfil their potential.

The RSBC work with wonderful donors and volunteers to deliver the five things they believe will transform the life chances of every blind child in England and Wales:

  1. Helping parents first
  2. Bet in class, inclusive education
  3. Building friendships, independence and resilience
  4. Getting young people job ready
  5. Harnessing technology

By 2020, the RSBC want to have reached 11,000 children and young people – and with 178 years of experience and the support of donors, they know they will get there.
