British Blind Sport is delighted to announce that the intial wave of our exciting First Steps Scotland activity packs have been dispatched!
The First Steps packs are free activity packs for children with a visual impairment, containing a jingle ball, activity booklet, reward chart, pump and balloon.
We hope the First Steps packs encourage children with a visual impairment across Scotland to take part in more physical activity and sport. The project has seen a phenomenal amount of support from organisations such as Scottish Disability Sport, Blind Children UK, RNIB Scotland and Visibility. Former Paralympic judoka and bronze medallist Ben Quilter has shown his support of the project on Twitter.
There are currently 54 children with a visual impairment signed up to the project and interest and publicity in First Steps is growing. British Blind Sport are excited to find out whether First Steps makes a tangible difference through sport in Scotland.
With the project running until the end of October, there is still time to sign up for your free First Steps pack. To find out more, please contact Jennifer Scally on 0131 317 1130 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
This project has been possible thanks to the generous players of The People's Postcode Lottery.
