A MOTHER is organising an activity laden fun day including a 10km run to buy equipment for her visually impaired daughter.
Rosie Bradbury aims to raise about £4,000 from the event to pay for an iPad and FarView device, which would help her youngster Harriet see views up close.
The two-year-old was born with Albinism, which results in a lack of pigmentation and affects her sight.
Mrs Bradbury said: “What we can see 60 metres away, Hattie can only see the same at six metres away. I thought this would be a nice thing to do for the village and to introduce her to the local area so when she gets to school her condition isn’t such a big deal.”
She has arranged the action packed festivities on Saturday, September 10, on Barningham Cricket Field from 10am to 2pm. The 10km run, jog or walk starts at 10.15am and children can enjoy a fun run at noon as well as sand art.
There will also be stalls, a Pimms tent, barbecue and cream teas. She plans to give half of the money raised to the Albinism Fellowship and the National Blind Children’s Society if the target is reached. To register for the run, which is £8 in advance, or if anyone would like to have a stall, email barningham10K@yahoo.co.uk or call (01359) 220142. Forms for the run are available at the Bury Free Press, in King’s Road, Bury.
