Deaf & Hearing Impairment Team receive donation from Qualcomm

Our Deaf & Hearing Impairment team were delighted to receive a donation of over £600 from Qualcomm, a mobile technology company based at the Cambridge Business Park.

Qualcomm fundraised for the team during the 2018 World Cup with a whole host of different activities including keepy-up challenges and wearing football shirts into the office.

Two members of the Qualcomm team came to see the sessions, led by our disability sports officer, Phil Mullen. They were joined as well by Mark Bonner, assistant manager of Cambridge United with 8 of our younger professional footballers.

After warming up the Deaf & Hearing Impairment team took part in a series of football drills, practising their dribbling and passing. The Cambridge United professionals & Qualcomm staff then joined our team in some dribbling races and a game of football noughts and crosses!

Finally the youngsters took on the Cambridge United professionals in a match! The young people had a fantastic time and we are grateful to Mark and the players for taking time to come and visit the session. We are also thankful to the team Qualcomm for their generous donation.

Our sessions run every Monday from 3.15pm - 4.45pm at Cottenham Village College.
