The Blind Foundation is again running a tramp for clients from throughout the South island which will this time be based at Hanmer Springs.  Day tramps will encompass a variety of tracks in the Hanmer Springs, Hurunui area.

The aim of this programme is to provide an opportunity for members to extend their walking experience, have fun in the outdoors and to enjoy the companionship of other blind and low vision adults from throughout the South Island.

The trip is suitable for persons who are currently doing some walking e.g. able to walk up to 3 or more hours in a day.  We plan to be able to cater for a range of fitness levels within the group

The subsidised cost of this trip to members is $150.  This includes:

  • 2 nights at Abilities Lodge, Hanmer Springs.
  • 2x evening meals (you will need to bring your own breakfasts and lunches, along with any snack food).
  • Transport to /from Dunedin  or Christchurch.
  • Contribution toward volunteers costs – as without these wonderful people this trip would not be possible.

To confirm your interest in this trip please fill in this online registration form no later than 14th October 2016.  Depending on the number of applications there may be a selection process.

Places on the trip will be confirmed the week of 17th October and full payment will then be due by 4th November 2016.
