Paces enjoy visit to Bramall Lane

The Blades recently opened their doors to Paces, as one of their nominated charities, for a morning of activities on the hallowed turf of Bramall Lane.

A group of over 70 children and young adults, with a range of motor disabilities, were accompanied by their parents, siblings and carers to take part in the fun.

Dave McCarthy, Operations Director at Sheffield United, said: “It was a privilege to be able to watch our guests and their families enjoy some time together having fun on the pitch.  It also proved to be a great experience for some of our Bramall Lane staff, Academy players and members of our Ladies First Team, who all joined in the kick about.

“Paces is a fantastic local charity that works so hard to help improve the lives of those affected by motor conditions and it was great to play a part in supporting everyone associated with them.”

Vikki Mallinder, External Relations Officer at Paces, said: “Our trip to Sheffield United demonstrates the power of local collaboration in helping transform the lives of the individuals this charity represents.

“Experiences like this provide an invaluable part to the learning process and development of these children and young adults”.
