Blind Tennis Programme at Windsor Shortlisted for National Lottery Awards- Please Vote!

Disability Sport NI (DSNI) are excited to announce that the Blind Tennis Programme at Windsor has been shortlisted for the National Lottery Good Causes Awards. The National Lottery Awards are an annual search to find the UK’s favourite National Lottery-funded projects. They celebrate the inspirational people and projects who do extraordinary things with National Lottery funding.

The project started at Windsor and has developed over the last 2 years, so much so that DSNI have a second Blind Tennis Club up and running at CIYMS Belfast, more people playing the sport, opportunities for children to get involved as well as adults and many opportunities for competition. This is the only project in Northern Ireland to be shortlisted to be a finalist from around 700 entries.  The winning project receives a cash price and a night at the BBC Studios in England. Therefore, DSNI need your help to encourage people to vote for the project!

Please share DSNI’s post on Facebook pages Disability Sport NI, Live Active NI and the Blind Sports Network as widely as possible and vote.
