by | Jun 10, 2024 | News

Come join us and other teens and young adults affected by retinoblastoma (Rb) at Ackers Adventure in Birmingham.

Ackers Adventure is a charity that exists to promote and engage people of all ages, abilities and disabilities in the regular pursuit of outdoor adventure activities.

We’re kicking the day off with an ice breaker and team building activity. Bring your own packed lunch to have inbetween the morning and our afternoon activity – archery! All activities are accessible to those with a visual impairment.

It’s a great day to talk about all things Rb and CHECT, as well as connecting with other people who have similar experiences to you.

On the day we kindly ask that you allow 5 mins after the event to fill out one of our feedback forms – your opinions and ideas are invaluable to us!

Book your tickets!
