One of Unity Works’ Employment Ambassadors, Abdul, was recognised for Sporting Achievement at Royal Borough of Greenwich Civic Awards 2020. The Civic Awards champion the great work that people living and working in Greenwich are doing.
Abdul’s achievements include setting up his own sports programme and working to improve awareness of and opportunities for people with disabilities in sport. The awards were originally due to take place in March 2020, but were rescheduled and arranged to be socially distanced following lockdown.
Abdul and his family spoke to Mayor Linda Bird about his experiences getting his coaching qualification, what drives him and how he wants to inspire others to try new things. Abdul dedicated his award to people with learning disabilities and offered to coach the Mayor in goalball!
Well done Abdul!
