Metro Blind Sport – Reactivating Activity

Encouraging blind and partially sighted people to be active once the lockdown measures are relaxed, and some form of social distancing remains, will be dependent on how we can help stimulate activity for our members.

In response to Covid-19 pandemic, Metro Blind Sport have had to cease all activity until such time that the government provide guidance about restarting activity in a safe manner.

The founders of Metro Blind Sport created the charity for four principle reasons;

  • To create sport PARTICIPATION opportunities for blind and partially sighted people;
  • To share INFORMATION on the sporting opportunities available to blind and partially sighted people;
  • To COMMUNICATE the benefits of sport and physical activity on the lives of blind and partially sighted people to participants, national governing bodies, operators and the wider sport and leisure sector;
  • To have FUN.

47 years later, those same four principle reasons remain firmly at the heart of what we do. Visual impairment does not have to prevent people from playing sport.

Encouraging blind and partially sighted people to be active once the lockdown measures are relaxed, and some form of social distancing remains, will be dependent on some significant changes to improve accessibility and access to information and activities. We are therefore asking for your support during these difficult times.

If you can make a donation, however small, it will place Metro Blind Sport in a positive position to stimulate activity as quickly as possible once sport and physical activity can recommence. This could ensure that we can reach as many people as possible, promoting our members physical and mental wellbeing through the power of sport and social connectedness.

Thank you so much for supporting Metro Blind Sport and our blind and partially sighted members.

Odette £2600 Challenge for Metro Blind Sport!

As the London Marathon was cancelled this year many charities lost fundraising opportunities. The Challenge 26 was created to help charities fundraise.

My Challenge is to create 26 different exercises in 26 days using tin cans as weights and I will continue if you continue to donate!

I started doing some workouts using tins as weights, carefully describing each move as I know that it would be very hard for those who cannot see screens to follow the regular videos posted on Youtube. So help me keep blind and partially sighted people fit and well with some easy exercises to do at home!

My aim is to raise £2600 for Metro blind sport, a charity that supports blind and partially sighted children and adults to participated in physical activities and sports. Charity No.1158098
