Ethicare Day Support Hub Disability Team Visit SJP
Ethicare Day Support Hub Disability Team, part of Durham FA, enjoyed a tour of St James’ Park following the final Disability Adult Colleges and Centres League Fixture Day at Goals Sunderland.
The tour was organised as a surprise for one of their players, Tinus, after he broke his ankle during one of the games on the final day of the season. He is pictured with Dave and Reggie.
Newcastle United Foundation staff looked after the player at the time of the incident until the ambulance arrived and found out that he was a NUFC fan and although he had been to a few games he hadn’t really seen much of the stadium.
Dave Jamieson, Support Worker at Ethicare Day Support Hub said: “We wanted to thank Newcastle United Foundation, from all at Ethicare, for the professional and personal support while attending to Tinus in his need of care. We have all had a great day looking around this magnificent stadium. He has made a full recovery and hopefully will be able to start playing again when the league re-commences in October.”
Reggie Dornan, Disability Coach at Newcastle United Foundation, added: “We really enjoyed welcoming the group from Ethicare Day Support Hub to St James’ Park – it was great to see Tinus back on his feet! I’m really pleased they enjoyed their visit.”
