Try VI Sports Day

British Blind Sport announce 'Try VI Sports' Day in Hereford

British Blind Sport are delighted to bring an event offering a taster of visually impaired (VI) sport, open to both visually impaired and fully sighted individuals. British Blind Sport (BBS) is the national charity supporting blind and partially sighted people to get active and play sport. The Try VI Sports Day, delivered by BBS See My Voice Young Leaders, aims to help more VI people to find their next sporting adventure in Herefordshire and the surrounding areas as well as raising the profile and understanding of VI sport among sports coaches, officials and professionals.

The charity is pleased to work in partnership with the Royal National College for the Blind to deliver a fun filled day of activity that enables children and adults to have a go at a wide range of sports. This event is kindly funded by Sport England and the #iwill Fund, which is made possible thanks to joint funding from the government and the National Lottery Community Fund. There will be an opportunity to try cricket, football, goalball, guide running and tennis with more sports to be confirmed very soon. Following the event, BBS will support those that attended to identify what local clubs and sporting facilities are available to them to encourage all attendees to continue to play sport regularly.

The Hereford Try VI Sports Day is free to attend will take place on Wednesday 17th April 2019, 11am to 4pm at the Royal National College for the Blind, Hereford, HR1 1DT.
