FOOTBALL is a tough game - and even harder when you can’t see!

A special ball fitted with a bell helped pupils from Westfield Sports College in Sheffield join staff from Sainsbury’s at Crystal Peaks for a blindfolded kickabout as part of efforts to promote disabled sports in the run-up to the 2012 Paralympics.

The youngsters - part of the school’s sports leaders programme - are getting together with store staff for two more events soon. This Thursday will see them playing seated volleyball together, and on February 8 they will try their luck with wheelchair basketball.
