Are you up for the challenge? Do you think you could complete a walk with a simulated sight impairment? Come and walk in my shoes and find out!
We are challenging you to ‘walk in Glen’s shoes’, our friend who sadly passed away in 2016, by completing a walk from La Fregate Cafe to Bel Royal and back with a simulated sight impairment.
On arrival you will receive training from EYECAN’s Rehabilitation Officer who will teach you the basics of guiding a sight impaired person, you will collect your simulation glasses and together with a buddy set off on the challenge. Experience the challenge together, if you wish, by sharing the walk between you.
Group training sessions on how to guide a sight impaired person will last for approx. 10 minutes and will be held at 0900 and 0915.
Our challenge isn’t a race, it is a way of you experiencing the challenges faced by sight impaired members of Jersey’s community.
Not feeling up for the challenge? That’s ok too. How about a walk from La Fregate to St Aubin and back, a good way to blow out the cobwebs on a Sunday morning and a fantastic way of supporting one of Jersey’s oldest charities.
