Scottish War Blinded Choir is established at the Linburn Centre

Scottish War Blinded members are enjoying the opportunity to develop their singing and performance skills through the introduction of regular choir sessions at the Linburn Centre.

Having witnessed todays’ session, it is remarkable to think that choir sessions began just three weeks ago as members confidently perform their way through a series of warm-up exercises and pieces.

Steven remains on track for coaching success

Steven remains on track for coaching success

We last spoke to Steven Waterston in June 2014, following his nomination by Scottish War Blinded to run part of the Queen’s Commonwealth Baton Relay in recognition of his determination in overcoming a visual impairment and neurosurgery to continue his passion for athletics.

Steven worked during that time with fellow Scottish War Blinded members in the gym at the Linburn Centre as part of his work experience modules to gain a B-Tec Level/HND in Sports & Exercise qualification. Since then, Steven has completed UK Athletics coaching courses, qualified as Personal Trainer and now works with promising young athletes as a coach at Meadowbank Stadium.

We caught up with Steven to learn more about the coaching programmes he delivers to young athletes as well as his own progress as a visually impaired runner.
