Talks and Goalball for schools

Cam Sight’s Fundraising and Promotions Officer Nick Burr visits schools and speaks to students about his personal story living with blindness.

Nick can give talks to the whole school in an assembly or individual classes and talks openly about living with a disability and his guide dog Amber. The talks are aimed at breaking down barriers with children regarding disability, informing them about assistive technology and educating students by answering ‘any’ questions they ask.

Nick also offers Goalball taster sessions for up to 20 children. Goalball gives students the experience of playing a sport completely blind and on a level playing field. This popular and exciting session improves student’s communication, leadership and teamwork skills.

If you are interested or would like to find out more, please get in touch with Nick via nick@camsight.org.uk or 01223 420033 ext. 29.
