People with low or no vision in Fenland have been able to enjoy lawn bowls in March.
Cam Sight teamed up with the Braza Bowls Club to offer sessions throughout the summer.
John Chivers, Braza committee member and Sam Wool, Cam Sight sports service, worked together to set up this opportunity and enable accessibility for people with sight loss and blindness.
John, Sam and Braza members supported participants by adapting the lawn and providing verbal instruction throughout matches.
At the last game this season, John commented on the progress made by Cam Sight members and on how much the games were enjoyed by all.
