The event will feature a fantastic line-up of sporting activities for blind and partially sighted people of all ages and abilities to participate in alongside their friends and family. Activities available on the day will be released across BBS’s social media channels during the build up to the event.

The event will give anyone living with sight loss in Bristol and the surrounding area the opportunity to try adapted sports and learn about inclusive opportunities that are available to enjoy and participate in after the event.

Vicky Cook, Participation Officer at British Blind Sport said,

“We are delighted to be hosting a Have a Go Day in Bristol to give blind and partially sighted people a chance to try out different sports and hopefully discover a new passion or hobby. Physical activity plays such an important role in living a happy and healthy life, our Have a Go Days ensure that more people will get an opportunity to experience some of the activities available.”
