Donations to Metro Blind Sport
Introduction to Metro Blind Sports Video
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.
We need the support and involvement of individuals, companies and trusts to enable us to provide a broad range of sporting activities, first-class facilities and coaching for all blind and partially sighted people across Greater London.
Donate your commute:
For those of us who are lucky enough to be able to work from home, we sure are saving a lot of money from our commute! Whether it be your train, tube, bus or petrol fees, this could make a huge difference to communities in difficult circumstances. Why not donate your weekly travel costs and ask your friends and family to do the same to Metro Blind Sport a great cause that needs support?

Metro Blind Sport is a Registered Charity No. 1158098 (formerly 268076)
Leave a gift in your will
A Will ensures that the proceeds of your estate go to the people or organisations that you wish to benefit from them and in whatever proportion you decide.
If you do not leave a Will then the state will determine how your estate will be divided, to whom and in what proportions. It can be a lengthy process. You can give money to one or more chosen charities in your Will. It is very tax-efficient because charity donations are excluded from inheritance tax.
Charities, like Metro Blind Sport, benefit because every penny of the money you donate can be used to provide sporting opportunities for hundreds of blind and partially sighted individuals for many years to come.
