Donations to Metro Blind Sport
Participation in sport provides blind and partially sighted people with opportunities to integrate into society, to build peer group friendships, to increase confidence and self-esteem as well as gaining valuable physical exercise and improved fitness, health and wellbeing.
The performances of our Paralympians in the London 2012 Olympics has shown what can be achieved at an elite level. To ensure that blind and visually impaired people at a grass route level have the same opportunities, to achieve their personal goals, means protecting and developing our current activities. This is where you can a make difference
