Newcastle Power Chair Football Club has received a generous donation to help them continue their achievements in the sport; a power chair, which costs £8,345, has been mainly financed by Videx Charitable Trust.
Power Chair football is a unique sport that provides people with disabilities, including those living with cerebral palsy, an opportunity to play football. Rob Thompson has been coaching the powerchair football team for 18 months but has played the game since he was 16 years old. With the help of his colleague Jamie, Rob is helping his team become the best in the division and vital donations such as the Videx Charitable Trust power chair are instrumental to the success and longevity of the football club.
Rob said: “Our team offers an opportunity for those in wheelchairs with physical impairments to play a sport they love. We have such a talented and committed squad and the chair greatly enables us to continue to make football accessible to those with disabilities and enhances our performance on the court.”
