Sight and Sound are proudly sponsoring the Royal National College for the Blind and the 2015 ISBA Blind Football European Championships, held this year in Hereford, England. Here at Sight and Sound we believe in making the difference through knowledge, care and understanding in all areas of life - professional and personal. That is why we support organisations who make sports, hobbies, and games accessible to those with a visual impairment.
On the 17th of April we were invited to the 2015 ISBA Blind Football European Championships launch event at the Museum of Football in Manchester. In attendance were a number of members of the England blind football team, members of supporting organisations including the Paralympics Committee and the FA, and ex-professional England footballer, Danny Mills.
It was a great launch event with plenty of activities and exhibits on show, including a very large depiction of Robbie Savage’s face with a large hole where his mouth is. The aim of this activity, get the ball through the hole - blindfolded. It was a great way to help fully sighted people understand just how hard playing Blind Football really is.
The ISBC Blind Football Championships 2015, are taking place at the Point4 at the Royal National College for the Blind in Hereford - on 22nd-29th of August. Early Bird tickets are available now for just £5, for more details please visit: http://www.rnc.ac.uk/blindeuros/.
