Carrots Night Walk Success

A group of Birdshotters and their friends took part in Friday night’s Carrots Night walk raising money towards future Birdshot research.    The walk was organised by the charity Fight for Sight.

BUS are pleased to announce that we will have raised at least £7,000, and probably more, thanks to all the generous support we have received from friends, family and supporters.    This is fantastic news for Birdshotters.   It means that we have made a good start towards helping to get some funding for future research into Birdshot in partnership with the much larger charity Fight for Sight.  Thanks so much to all our supporters and of course to all our walkers!!

It’s not too late to donate!   http://www.justgiving.com/teams/Birdshot-Biobank
