Over the last three years, dedicated Sense fundraiser Rob Lloyd has endured every challenge imaginable.
He’s run the London Marathon three times, taken the plunge with terrifying skydives, organised an 11-a-side charity football match and pushed himself through gruelling hikes.
He’s even been marching around North Wales in a suit of armour to raise money and awareness for Sense’s Denbigh Hub.
Rob’s hard work and dedication has so far raised a record-breaking £100,000 for people living with deafblindness and complex disabilities.
“I’ve had to dig deep, both mentally and physically like never before. But ultimately, I’m having fun, and I’m finding it incredibly rewarding. Sense is an incredible charity and they make a profound impact.”Rob Lloyd
Why Rob Lloyd supports Sense
Sense supports people living with deafblindness and complex disabilities, like the Clucas family, whose story first inspired Rob to get involved.
Mia and her brother Charlie Clucas were both born blind, and unlikely to ever walk or speak. The news was devastating for their parents – but with the help of the Sense Family Centre in Peterborough, they found hope.
Now, with help from Sense and fundraisers like Rob Lloyd, Mia and Charlie’s parents have found ways to communicate with their children.
We can’t provide vital services, such as our specialist support for children who are deafblind, without the generosity of supporters like Rob. We rely entirely on donations to keep these services going.
