Gelateria Danieli (in Richmond, London) owner Bridget Hunt has created a 'Fairy Queen' Ice cream to raise funds for the Shine the Light on Aniridia Campaign! 

The unqiue flavour is on sale throughout the summer once a month and they have already raised £200 in one week!

Our huge thanks go to Bridget for her support and to the team at Gelateria Danieli for the kindness in supporting the campaign.

This Wednesday Ben Richardson and his friend Adam, supported by Virginia (Ben's wife) intend to climb 24 peaks in the Lake District, each over 2,400ft, in 24 hours. The challenge consists of 31 miles of walking, as the crow flies, coupled with approximately 14,000 feet of climbing in rugged terrain. This is usually done in teams of 5 over 2 days. However, they shall be undertaking to complete the challenge in a team of two in one 24 hour block. This means they shall have the extra challenge of carrying everything that they need, having no sleep and navigating at night. 

An amazing selfless act of bravery and determination to support the campaign! Huge thanks to them and also for the Active Nation Open Day held last Saturday 17th July which also raised funds and to everyone involved for their kindness!

Ella's Uncle and Godfather Ben Richardson is taking on an inordinate challenge this summer to climb 24 peaks in the Lake District, each over 2,400ft, in 24 hours. The challenge consists of 31 miles of walking, as the crow flies, coupled with approximately 14,000 feet of climbing in rugged terrain. This is usually done in teams of 5 over 2 days. However, he shall be undertaking to complete the challenge in a team of two in one 24 hour block. This means he shall have the extra challenge of carrying everything that he needs, having no sleep and navigating at night. Just mind blowing and yet another amazing challenge to raise our target. Thank you to Ben, his co team member and Virgina, his wife, for helping organise this and supporting the campaign.
