Special Event - Disability Assembly

19 November 2015

During anti-bullying week on the 19th November 2015, the West Bromwich Albion coaches got involved and carried out an assembly all about disabilities.

During this assembly, one of the coaches told us his story about how he became visually impaired at the young age of 21. He was extremely inspirational, as he explained to the children that even with a disability, you can still thrive and achieve what you want.

Whilst his story was being played, a small group of children were blindfolded, to provide them with the experience he has on a day to day basis.

The coach, who has limited vision, was then interviewed by the children, where he happily answered all of their questions.
