Colditz Castle, located deep in the heart of German, sits on top of a 255-foot cliff with a river down below. During World War II it was considered impenetrable and used as prisoner-of-war camp for those Allied officers who had repeatedly escaped from other camps.
Now, adventurer, fundraiser and all-around champion for change, Blind Dave Heeley will take on the challenging fortress and escape all the way from Colditz back to “The Baggies”.
RNIB Connect Radio’s Simon Pauley spoke with Dave to find out more about Dave’s latest challenge.
