Two of our participants were Steve and Nik who completed the 100 mile cycle and managed to raise almost £2,000 between them.
Steve, who is a former Army Sergeant, felt it was his duty to raise awareness of Blind Veterans UK after serving for 22 years.
He says: “I have personally seen members of my own Corps and the Armed Services affected by the loss of their vision and I know the good work this charity does for vision-impaired veterans and I am hoping to raise even more than I already have.”
On the other hand Nik, who had completed the ride three times, decided to raise funds after discovering our charity.
Nik adds: “I cannot imagine having to do some of my day to day tasks without sight. It makes me appreciate what I have but also that blind veterans need any support we can give them.”
