Looking for VI Sport in Cambridgeshire? Our page includes information about a range of opportunities in the county for children and young people with visual impairments ranging from goalball to cricket.
Interested in blind and VI football?
Cambridge United is starting blind and visual impaired football sessions in September on a Saturday morning at Coleridge Community College, Cambridge.
The college is just a short walk from the train station and there are plans to have volunteers to assist with travel to the session.
The first two sessions will be free and then charged at just £3 a session thereafter.
If you or anyone you know would be interested in attending coaching sessions, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org with your name and email address, so you can be contacted when details are confirmed.
All guide runners on the database are licensed which means they are DBS checked and have attended an England Athletics ‘Sight Loss Awareness and Guide Running’ workshop. Guides can also help young people get into running.
Find the database at www.englandathletics.org/findaguide
Local charity Cam Sight, which supports local people living with sight loss and blindness, has a trained Guide runner in its Community Volunteer Support Coordinator, Samantha Wool.
