Our SaintsAbility participants have done an amazing job of adapting to the massive changes and challenges of 2020. To celebrate the end of the year, we invited a very special guest to their Christmas fun session!

SaintsAbility is all about unlocking talent and realising potential. We work in schools, our community and on the training pitch to support people with all forms of disability.

2020 has been difficult for all of us, but the removal of usual routines and support has been especially challenging for our SaintsAbility participants. While face-to-face football briefly restarted in September, the second lockdown swiftly moved our sessions back online. The group adjusted accordingly, using weekly Zoom calls to meet up for a chat and a laugh.

We decided to reward our amazing participants with a festive fun session to remember. When we gathered them together for a football-themed quiz, none of them expected to be tested by a very special quizmaster – Danny Ings!

Danny relished in his new role and put their Saints knowledge to the test. The participants were then offered the chance to switch things up and ask Danny a few questions of their own!
