A brave Wer­ring­ton school­boy has raised £350 for char­ity by walk­ing through Ferry Mead­ows blind­folded with only a long white cane to guide him. T we l ve - yea r- o l d Eth a n Lut­terer took on the feat t o he l p Pe te r b o r o u g h As­so­ci­a­tion for the Blind ( PAB), a char­ity that gives the vis­ually im­paired peo­ple of Peter­bor­ough and the sur­round­ing ar­eas the right sup­port.

Ethan is PAB’s youngest vo l u nte e r, an d h e wa s ac­com­pa­nied and sup­ported by his mother, Nina, guide dogs, PABmem­ber­sand­many oth­ers as he ne­go­ti­ated the course and lis­tened to the “sound of leaves in the wind”

Ethanhas­been­di­ag­nosed with Irlen’s syn­drome, which af­fects the brain’s abil­ity to process vis­ual in­for­ma­tion and has to wear blue tinted glasses, but de­spite this he still took on the “blind walk” in or­der to raise money for a char­ity he be­lieves is “worth the money.”
