Widnes Vikings opened a special Vikings themed room in a care home that supports people with complex learning disabilities, to mark Learning Disability Week.
Star player Alex Gerrard and representatives of the club visited Glenwood Care Home in Widnes to celebrate a major refurbishment of the home and officially open a Widnes Vikings themed room, which celebrates the proud history of the club.
Glenwood is home to eight people who live with complex learning disabilities and also offers short-term respite support to five people. It is part of the national charity Community Integrated Care, a Widnes-based social care charity that has formed a pioneering long-term partnership with Widnes
Vikings, promoting the health, wellbeing, happiness and inclusion of people supported by the charity, their colleagues and members of the local community.
Many of the people supported at the home and their support staff are dedicated Vikings fans, so they chose to create this themed area to celebrate their shared passion as part of the refurbishment.
