A former Norwich City star has raised nearly £8,000 for Norfolk's sight loss charity – after stepping out on a 13 mile 'blind walk'.

Jeremy Goss, who is head of fundraising at the Norfolk & Norwich Association for the Blind, walked from Gorleston to Corton and back while wearing a blindfold, to raise awareness of the challenges that visually-impaired people face.

He was guided on the walk by his two sons Jacob and Joseph, and completed the 13 mile walk without removing the blindfold.

With the support of Barclays Bank's match-funding initiative, along with donations and sponsorship, the walk raised nearly £8,000 for the NNAB.

Jeremy Goss said: 'Those of us blessed with good sight take simple things like walking along the prom for granted; it's not until you put on a blindfold that you realise just how challenging it can be.'
