Martyn's 5 Million Steps

To help raise money for Warwickshire Vision Support's services, WVS trustee Martyn Parker has set himself an enduring challenge of walking a total of 5 million steps in 2022.

Martyn who is visually impaired, will have to walk an impressive average of 13,698 steps every single day without fail to complete his goal.

Martyn has been involved with Warwickshire Vision Support for over 30 years and would like your support to help him raise money.

I'm Going Blind. This Is What I See

In the video from the New York Times, the filmmaker James Robinson introduces us to Yvonne Shortt, who is legally blind. But unlike the stereotype of the blind living in a lightless world, Ms. Shortt, like most other legally blind people, lives a nuanced existence between those who see well and those who can’t see a thing. In this short film, Mr. Robinson simulates what it’s like to be Ms. Shortt, navigating her world with progressively declining eyesight but also recognizing what she has gained even as she has lost something so precious.
