Pin on a badge and show your sup­port

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - OPINION -

IN THE past, Ash­ford Ac­tion­naires, Ac­tion for Blind Peo­ple’s lo­cal sports club for blind and par­tially-sighted chil­dren, has al­ways en­joyed fan­tas­tic sup­port from your read­ers. This year is ac­tion’s 150th an­niver­sary. To mark the oc­ca­sion, the char­ity and high­street bank Lloyds TSB have joined forces to raise funds and aware­ness for ac­tion’s mul­ti­ac­tiv­ity sports clubs for blind and par­tially sighted chil­dren. For a six-week pe­riod start­ing in June, you will be able to sup­port ac­tion by pur­chas­ing a spe­cially-made pin badge from your lo­cal Lloyds TSB branch in Ash­ford. The badges will fea­ture cur­rent stars of Nick­elodeon car­toon All Grown Up, the fol­low-up show to the hugely suc­cess­ful Ru­grats, which fol­lows the ad­ven­tures of Tommy, Chuckie, Susie and An­gel­ica as they face the chal­lenges of grow­ing up. By join­ing forces with Lloyds TSB to pro­mote the All GrownUp pin badge cam­paign, we are hop­ing to raise £50,000 to give more blind and par­tially sighted chil­dren the op­por­tu­nity to en­joy sport.
