Take on 250 for VisionPK

Every day in the UK 250 people begin to lose their sight. That’s why we need you to Take on 250 for VisionPK.

VisionPK are your local sight and hearing loss charity – supporting people across Perth & Kinross with the challenges sensory impairment can cause, and helping them live life on their own terms.

New Year is the perfect time for a fresh start. So why not push yourself with a challenge and brighten up your January?

Choose a new challenge or take on something you know you love. Then just complete 250 of whatever challenge you decide whether that’s 250 minutes, steps, laps, cupcakes, scarves, books – the choice is endless.

There’s no fundraising target, either. Just do as much as you can.

Whatever you do, you’ll be making a huge difference to people in Perth & Kinross with a sensory impairment.

How it works:

  • Choose your challenge: walking, running, cycling or swimming; cake-baking or singing; dancing or knitting – it’s all up for grabs!

  • Decide your 250 goal: it could be 250 minutes, involve 250 steps or laps, 250 repetitions or creating 250 items.

  • Pick a timeframe that suits you – complete it all in one go, spread it across January, or anything in between

  • Choose your fundraising target. We suggest you aim to raise £100 but it’s up to you, just raise as much as you can.
