RSBC Sensory Spooktacular Fri 30 Oct!

RSBC's Sensory Spooktacular is coming on 30th October

The Spooktacular is an online sensory storytime for all children and their families that will include a scary story, Halloween activities and interactive games that you can take part in the comfort of your own home.

Dress your home in Spooktacular fashion with spiders, cobwebs, and ghoulish, ghostly decorations, carve out the pumpkin and get the costumes and makeup out and join us for some Halloween games, stories and fun.

Each £4.95 ticket gives one household access to attend all three interactive sessions, which are:

Terrifying Tots at 3 pm

A 40 min session for preschool-aged children up to 5 years

Ghastly Goblins at 5 pm

An hour-long session for younger children aged 5-13 years

Frightful Fiends at 7 pm

An hour-long session for older children aged 13 years +

All the proceeds are in aid of the RSBC and will support blind children and their families in England and Wales so please spread the word amongst your friends, school and family.

See you on the Friday 30th October for some fiendishly good fun!

With wicked wishes,

BBS New ” Active at Home” Virtual Program!

British Blind Sport adapts virtual delivery programme

British Blind Sport New ” Active at Home” Virtual Program!

As restrictions begin to differ vastly across the UK, British Blind Sport have decided to change their Workout Wednesday programme to something with more flexibility and permanence.

Rather than have one workout per week, BBS will now run a live workout week at the beginning of each month with a different inclusive class each night from Monday to Friday at 6 pm.

The timetable for the first live week of the Active At Home Programme is as follows;

Main BBS  Active at Home  Link

For more information, please contact BBS Participation Officer, David, on david@britishblindsport.org.uk or phone 01926 424247

Following these live workouts, BBS will release “follow up” exercise sessions for each different class so that participants can improve and build on their performance throughout the month – until the next live workout week.

BBS think this new programme will provide more structure to the online workout series, with the pre-recorded follow on sessions allowing participants to take part whenever they have time and motivating them to progress in their chosen classes.

One participant said, “I’m finding these workouts fantastic!  Currently, self-isolating and can’t get out to walk or run. These workouts are keeping me sane!”

Another said, “It’s nice to do exercise alongside other people (even virtually!) and have very motivating instructors who speak to the participants and correct our positions. It’s a great idea!”
