Metro Blind Sport has been named as Elevate's charity partner for the 2019 show
Organisers of Elevate, Elite Sport and COPA are delighted to announce Metro Blind Sport as its Charity of the Year partner for the 2019 trade show, held at ExCeL London on 8-9 May.

Recognising an official charity for the first time at this year’s event, Elevate aims to promote disability sport and physical activity to the 10,000+ expected attendees through leveraging its partnership with Metro Blind Sport.

Metro Blind Sport is a London based charity that opens the door to sport for all vision impaired people, regardless of age or sporting ability. The charity aims to encourage participation and to create opportunities to take part in a wide range of activities including bowls, archery, football, tennis, athletics and swimming.

The partnership between Elevate and Metro Blind Sports will further promote the inclusive nature of the trade show and 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. Volunteers will also be fundraising at Elevate through Bucket Collection, as the charity relies heavily on donations to subsidise its membership offer (£10 for life). The money goes towards a wide range of things including court and pitch hire and coaching.

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 physical activity more accessible for those will visual impairment and addressing the current issues that exist.

Elevate is the UK’s largest physical activity trade event. Held annually Elevate brings the physical activity sector together with those working in performance and health to tackle one of the most important challenges of our time: tackling physical inactivity.
“The importance of the event, Elevate, is to bring together the fitness industry, the technology industry, the healthcare sector and the really important people - who are the practitioners who promote physical activity - and give them a sound bed of evidence to take away and use in their everyday lives. New equipment, new ideas, new energy.” Prof. Charlie Foster, World Health Organisation and Oxford University.
