Visual impairment "no difference" for shooting

"Visually impaired people and shooting sounds a strange combination but it is really happening and we are all very excited.

This is one of the very few facilities available for people with a visual impairment around. I've had a go and for the first time the fact that I am completely blind made no difference. It was a completely level playing field. I managed to score four bulls-eyes out of five!"

– Julie Thomas, chair of visually impaired society Bridgevis
