South Swindon MP Sir Robert Buckland is this week highlighting the work of Swindon Bats Sports and Social Club for the Visually Impaired.

The charity, which was formed in 2006, has won a number of trophies over the years and are members of the British Blind Sport Tenpin.

The Bats aim is to provide regular activities for visually impaired people aged eighteen plus. Tenpin bowling sessions organised by the charity regularly take place at Tenpin Swindon, located on the Shaw Ridge Leisure Park.

Other activities for members throughout the years have included acoustic rifle shooting, skittles, and indoor kurling.

Mr Buckland added: "The group also hosts a trip to the seaside in the summer and a Christmas dinner in December and say they are always looking for new activities for members."
