Southampton striker provides a Christmas quiz to remember for young Saints Foundation Participants

When members of the Saints Foundation's SaintsAbility group got together for an online Christmas quiz, little did they know that a very special guest would be asking the questions.

It was Southampton striker Danny Ings that took to the quizmaster's chair as participants were given a festive fun session to remember.

And not only did he run the quiz, the youngsters were also able to question him at the end about subjects such as the favourite player he has played with and the Southampton player with the worst dress sense.

 

Ings has a long history of giving his support to youngsters with disabilities. While he was playing at Burnley, he set up the Danny Ings Disability Sports Project together with Burnley FC in the Community.

The SaintsAbility programme is delivered in schools, in the community and on the training pitch to support people with all forms of disability, to help them with living active and independent lives.

The coronavirus pandemic combined with the restrictions on activities and removal of usual routines and support has been especially challenging for SaintsAbility participants.

To help ease the frustrations of lockdown, Saints Foundation used online sessions as an opportunity for the youngsters to meet and have a chat.

The Christmas quiz is just one of many initiatives run by Saints Foundation to help their local community over Christmas.

They have organised the donation of toys valuing £10,000 to the city's annual toy appeal as well as delivering socially distanced outdoor walking sessions for older adults in the community.
