Metro Elevate’s Charity of the year!

Metro Blind Sport is Elevate's Charity of the Year

We have great news to share, Metro Blind Sport has been chosen as the charity of the year for the UK’s largest physical activity trade show, Elevate.

Recognising an official charity for the first time at this year’s event, Elevate aims to promote disability sport and physical activity to the 10,000+ expected attendees through its partnership with Metro Blind Sport.

Elevate takes place at the ExCel in London on the 8th and 9th May. 1000’s of visitors and key decision makers will be attending this year’s event, where there will be over 350 leading fitness-related exhibitors and over 300 speakers delivering a huge range of seminars and workshops.

Martin Symcox, CEO of Metro says “We are absolutely thrilled to partner with Elevate and are so thankful for their support. Being their nominated Charity of Year for 2019 provides an incredible platform for Metro Blind Sport to raise awareness of our services, educate people on the sporting opportunities available for blind and partially people, encourage support for campaigns and of course to raise funds for our charity.

Providing safe, accessible and high-quality sport and physical activity opportunities for blind and partially sighted people is at the core of what we do. What better way to raise awareness of the opportunities and to highlight the barriers that exist for blind and partially people, than at the UK’s leading physical activity trade show.”
