Engaging in sports and activities is important for everyone, regardless of their age or disability. It improves both physical and mental health, boosts confidence and just makes people feel better about themselves.

At Sight Scotland Veterans, we do not see visual impairment as a barrier to sport and we want to show everyone what is possible; whether that is playing bowls, golf, archery the list goes on and on.

Regular physical activity is an important part of living well. People who lead an active lifestyle are more likely to live longer. Physical exercise builds up both your physical and mental strength and makes everyone feel better.
