The event is being run by SportNI and being facilitated by coaches from a number of local boxing clubs who have been specifically trained in how to coach boxing skills to individuals who would usually be limited by their sight.

Councillor Sandra Duffy said

As someone who is partially sighted I welcome this as it can be difficult for people with certain disabilities to engage in sporting activities.

I hope that this will be one of many of these types of sessions that will allow individuals with disabilities to experience different sports and perhaps find a passion or a hidden talent for one.
