A Northumberland support worker who helps disabled people into sport has been nominated for a regional award.

Disability Inclusion Officer Ronnie Scheu, of Active Northumberland, has been nominated in the North East Disability Sports Awards for his work managing the Ability 2 Play leisure programme.

He said: “Having the chance to give something back to inspiring young people who have been through so many different hardships is very humbling. Although, it is my name on the nomination, Ability 2 Play wouldn’t be what it is today without the support of a fantastic team.”
