The Leeds United Foundation have been named in two categories for the upcoming annual Disability Sport Yorkshire Awards Dinner (DSY).

The club's official charity have been nominated for the Community Engagement Award and Anthony Hall who is the Disability Officer at the Foundation and heads up the disability programme has been nominated for Coach of the Year.

The event is set to take place at Elland Road on Friday 27th March 2020 where all of the winners will be revealed following deliberation from a panel of judges. DSY are an organisation that champion sport for those with disabilities, working hard to address the inequality in access to sport for disabled people and celebrating those who help to offer opportunities in the local community.

The Leeds United Foundation deliver a number of different disability projects across the city helping to make football and sport more accessible to those who struggle for the chance to stay active, have fun or play competitively. The projects range from delivering sports sessions with young children and adults to hosting a monthly event for older people suffering with dementia.

Good luck to Leeds United Foundation and all of the other nominees doing fantastic work with disabled people across Yorkshire!
