VICTA and RNC are hosting a youth trip in February at the RNC campus in Hereford. The trip will combine outdoor activities with cultural and social experiences. Our group will be based at the college, a Further Education College for students with visual impairments.

This promises to be a fun and busy few days – a chance to try new things and develop new skills. The break will be an ideal setting to meet other young people of a similar age group and share experiences.

We will be doing various activities during the trip, including a day at Oaker Wood activity centre, and also exploring Hereford and the surrounding area, as well as having a go at a few of the sports the RNC has to offer, and more!
