Danny Ings Disability Project

ings

6:00am 26th November 2014

Two goals at the weekend and the achievements keep on coming for Burnley player Danny Ings.

A keen charity fundraiser, he's launched and funded the self titled 'Danny Ings Disability Project' which aims to give local children a chance to get involved with football.

With the help of the club, he'll deliver football coaching sesions for children and young people throughout the Burnley area with disabilities and learning difficulties.

Speaking to 2BR, Danny said, "It's something that I've wanted to do for a long time. Unforunately these kids won't have the opportunity to have a career like mine so it's important that I give them part of my journey and share my success with them."

"This the first of many projects that I'd like to do throughout my career. It's taken a long time to get this one set up so I'm not sure how long it will be until the next one but as long as this one is running nice and smoothly I can come down and see the kids whenever I want - It's going to be fantastic."

"Hopefully this means as much to the kids as it does to me. Seeing the smiles on their faces is the best feeling in the world. This is something that's close to my heart and I want to do as much as I can. Hopefully the bigger I get in football terms - the bigger the projects and the more people I can work with."
