You may already know, but just in case you missed the news – our amazing producer Ross Culligan is jetting off to Ethiopia to run 10k in Africa’s biggest road race this Sunday!
He is raising money for the fantastic eye charity Orbis and has already raised over £2600 with sponsorships and some great fundraising events.
There are 39 million blind people in the world. 80% of those simply don’t need to be. A colossal 90% of the blind live in the developing world. Orbis is an international charity founded to eliminate avoidable blindness in the developing world.
After completing the 10k run, Ross will then go on to see how the money raised for Orbis is spent by visiting projects and schools in Ethiopia for a few days.
If you’d like to sponsor this wonderful man, visit his Just Giving page here. He has paid for all travel and accommodation himself so all money raised goes directly to Orbis!
Ross we are so unbelievably proud of you and good luck!!
