“The whole day was extremely well organised and each session was well structured. I learnt a lot about different sports available to visually impaired people and had lots of fun too! It is also good to have lots of visually impaired people meeting together to share experiences and ideas.”

“[My son] smiled throughout the session and had the most amazing time. His confidence and balance just grew and grew as the hour progressed. He wants to do this again!”
