Jak was invited along to attend a special event today run by Sainsburys who are the official sponsors to London 2012 Paralympic Games which start on 29th August.
The event today introduced the chosen children to the skills required in playing blind football, the children were trained by Gary Knight the FA’s Blind Football coach who works with the Paralympics GB football squad and the England Blind Football team. The session follows on from Sainsbury’s Million Kids Challenge where schools, clubs and organisations across the UK were sent Paralympic Sports Kits, encouraging 2.4 million children to try Paralympic sport ahead of the London 2012 Paralympic Games.
