‘Mad moment’ sees Nicky set for a 127-mile walk

Nicky Barnett has worked for Bradbury Fields for 14 years and, “in a mad moment last December”, decided it would be a good idea to walk the 127 miles from Leeds to Liverpool along the canal to raise funds for the organisation’s services for blind and partially sighted people.

The 54-year-old, who is services development manager at Bradbury Fields, will walk for five days from Monday, August 20.

“Losing one’s sight can be isolating and debilitating and it is not easy to access mainstream services and activities,” Nicky said.

Her mother, Dr Lola Barnett, has been registered blind for many years and has used their services which is how Nicky became involved with Bradbury Fields, which has existed for 160 years.
