Pin on a badge and show your support
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.
