Power Chair Purchases Boosts Playing Opportunities

Newcastle United Foundation’s Power Chair team has benefitted from funding from the Charity’s partnership with the Premier League and BT. 
Two second hand Storm Power Chairs have been purchased to give more attendees the chance to play football.  Up to 13 participants have been regularly been attending sessions but the Foundation didn’t have access to enough chairs to meet demand.
The chairs benefit the North East WFA Championship league team as well as the Foundation’s weekly coaching sessions, which take place every Thursday at Percy Hedley from 4.30 to 6.00 pm.
Reggie Dornan, Senior Project Co-ordinator (Disability) at Newcastle United Foundation, said, “This Premier League and BT funding has been a vital part of us being able to meet demand for the Power Chair sessions.  We regularly had more people than chairs turning up to sessions, and now, thanks to this support most players can get a chair of their own to practice in. This allows us to also develop the skills of the players not in the current league team, giving them the opportunity to practice and improve so that when they get called up they are confident they can perform.  We are already seeing the benefits in development players as they are getting more game time in our sessions.”
