Visual Impairment Sport and Physical Activity Day

We were delighted to welcome 30 blind and partially sighted young people to a Sport and Physical Activity Day on 8th May.

Activities on offer included Boccia, short tennis, football, cricket, cycling, wheelchair sports and athletics.

Event organiser Steve Sullivan said:

“Organising this event was a real team effort – a huge thank you to Panathlon and Liverpool FC Foundation for providing the funding which made the event possible.

Thanks also to St Vincent’s School, Action for Blind People,  Bradbury Fields, Active Me, SAVI NorthWest, and Greenbank Cycling Club for working with us to offer such a fabulous programme of activities for young people.”

He added:

“This was a great start and something for us to build on, as we develop sports and activities for people with a visual impairment.”
