The organiser of physical activity trade show Elevate has signed up Metro Blind Sport as its charity partner for this year's event.

Metro Blind Sport is a London-based charity that aims to make sport available for all vision-impaired people, regardless of age or sporting ability.

Through the partnership, the two organisations aim to promote disability sport and physical activity to the expected 10,000 attendees visiting the Elevate event, held at ExCeL London from 8 to 9 May.

The partnership between Elevate and Metro Blind Sports will also look to attract more people with disabilities to attend.

At the event, Metro Blind Sport will supply volunteers to assist blind and partially sighted visitors who are attending.

Metro Blind Sport will also have a stand in the Elevate exhibition where it hopes to engage a range of key decision makers in conversations around what more can be done to make sport and physical activity more accessible for those will visual impairment and addressing the current issues that exist.

Metro Blind Sport CEO, Martin Symcox, said: "Being Elevate's nominated Charity of Year for 2019 provides an incredible platform for Metro Blind Sport to raise awareness of our services, educate people on the sporting opportunities available for blind and partially people, encourage support for campaigns and of course to raise funds for our charity.

“Providing safe, accessible and high-quality sport and physical activity opportunities for blind and partially sighted people is at the core of what we do.

"What better way to raise awareness of the opportunities and to highlight the barriers that exist for blind and partially people, than at a leading physical activity trade show.”
