Disabled Footballers Inspire Corporate Donation

Disabled young footballers are celebrating following a generous donation from North Tyneside – based construction company, Southbay Civil Engineering.

The award-winning construction company has made a donation to the Magpie’s official charity Newcastle United Foundation in order to helpfund a flagship football project for children and young people with disabilities, Football for All.

Thanks to the project, 150 disabled young footballers have the chance to play football every week after school with another 500 children playing in school time. The Foundation has established a number of teams who represent Newcastle United including Down’s Syndrome, Wheel Chair Football, Visually Impaired and Cerebral Palsy teams.

Gill Green, from South Bay Civil Engineering said:

 

“We were blown away after visiting the Visually Impaired session at Walker Activity Dome. The course provides vital support for children with various disabilities. The Football For All project is a great chance for children to play football on a regular basis, this gives them the chance to do so with players who have a similar disabilities.

“It was fantastic to see the children enjoying themselves and hear how the group have developed in confidence and skill. We are proud to help fund such courses provided by the Foundation.”

Head of the Foundation, Kate Bradley added:

 

“We are delighted to receive this donation from South Bay Civil Engineering. Thanks to this funding even more disabled children can play football in the region without worrying about additional barriers such as transport, venue hire, kit and equipment.”

The Foundation’s football sessions for disabled children take place every week  Walker Activity Dome. To find out more about these sessions, or any aspect of our Football For All project, click here.

Newcastle United Foundation is a registered charity supported by Newcastle United Football Club. We exist to take the club into the local community to use the local passion of football to make a difference.
