Disability Festival

7 April 2016

Last Saturday, on Community Foundation Day at Bramall Lane, over 35 young people participated in the Sheffield United Community Foundation's Disability Festival held at the U-Mix Centre. The festival was open to local SEN schools across Sheffield.


SUCF coaches delivered a two-hour session for all participants, with activities including multi-skills, bowls, boccia and football drills. This was a fantastic day with all involved having a new and positive experience of disability sports.


After the successful event, Sheffield United Community Foundation invited all participants and their parents/carers to the Walsall match where there was more fun activities to get involved with prior to kick off. This included a penalty shootout and a target practice which allowed all them to measure the speed of their shot.


The festival was a great success for SUCF as all involved thoroughly enjoyed the atmosphere and were really enthusiastic to learn of future opportunities.
