Sports clubs for visually impaired children will open soon

BLIND and partially sighted children in the South West have received a boost to their sporting dreams this month.

Action for Blind People, a national charity running sports clubs for visually impaired children is to open new clubs in the South West, helped by a generous grant of £4,380 from the National Lottery's Awards for All.

The sports clubs, called Actionnaires, offer multi-sports in a safe and structured environment for visually impaired children aged eight-16 who might be excluded from sports in their mainstream schools.

For more information or if you know a child who might benefit from joining Actionnaires, go to the link below to locate your nearest club.

Alternatively, call Action's freephone information line on 0800-9154666 or Rebecca Frost for details of clubs in the South West, including upcoming clubs in Bristol and Swindon on 07894-390288.
