Wembley Bound Saints donation helps fund Saints Foundation disability sessions

In the build up to the club’s Saints Foundation dedicated matchday in March, Saints men’s first team players pledged a generous donation to support the work the charity do in supporting the city. The generous donation helped funding the return of Saints Foundation’s popular disability football sessions.

It has now been confirm, this donation from the 2023/24 men’s first team squad will part fund the return of the popular long-term SaintsAbility project.

Saints Foundation has a long and proud history of providing activity sessions for disabled people of all ages, and the disability football project SaintsAbility has been at the heart of what they’ve done for many years. Supporting active and independent lives for people with disabilities in the community, SaintsAbility breaks down barriers with open access football sessions.

These sessions allow for people living with disability to develop new social networks and remain active in a fun environment. This space is for people with both physical and cognitive impairments, meaning a wide range of stories showing the impact of SaintsAbility over the years.

“We’re proud to make this donation to Saints Foundation. All the lads know about the great work being done by the Foundation. When the fixture schedule allows, we all enjoy getting out in the community and we can see how much the Foundation means to people.”

Jack Stephens, Men’s First Team Club Captain
