British Blind Sport are delighted to be bringing to York, a sport taster event specifically for people living with sight loss. British Blind Sport is the national charity that supports blind and partially sighted people to get active and play sport.

The Have a Go Day events have been run successfully across the country since 2016, supporting over 900 people with a visual impairment to get active, with those attending enjoying a range of inclusive sport and physical activities delivered by professional coaches. In addition to trying new sports, attendees will also benefit from meeting industry professionals as well as other people living with sight loss taking their first steps towards living an active lifestyle.

The charity is pleased to work in partnership with Better Leisure, Disability Sport Yorkshire and the Wilberforce Trust to deliver a fun filled day of activity that enables children and adults to have a go at a wide range of sports. This event is free of charge to attend for British Blind Sport members, and £5 to non-members (BBS membership is free for juniors under the age of 18).
