On Saturday 29 October young Research Orthoptist, Daniel Osborne, kicked off a whole raft of Wobbly Wednesday activities at the Southampton Eye Unit in real style by riding a 12 mile route around the town on his unicycle.
Fuelled by dates, flap jack, fed to him at regular intervals by his stalwart outrider, Kathryn Greenhalgh, who rode the entire distance with him on a bicycle, as well as a desire to help idiopathically visually impaired children, Dan cycled from Winchester to Southampton to raise money for the Nystagmus Network and awareness of nystagmus. His journey covered some 20km and took just under 3.5 hours.
Dan sends out a special thank you to everyone who met him at the finish line and a very big thanks to everyone who has donated to his Just Giving page. So far Dan has already raised almost £500 but the page is still open so anyone wishing to donate can do so here https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/Daniel-Osborne5
There will be lots more Wobbly Wednesday events happening in the Eye Unit this week, so why not go along to join in the fun alongside the Nystagmus Network’s Chairman, Richard Wilson, if you’re in the area.
