MK Dons SET's work on display at Royal visit

Prince William meets with MK Dons SET's disability teams...

9 October 2017

MK Dons Sport and Education Trust’s disability teams received the great honour of being invited to take part in Prince William’s recent visit to Milton Keynes.

The visit was to celebrate Milton Keynes’ 50th anniversary and consisted of two main elements in Campbell Park, both of which involved the SET.

The first was a series of displays across a variety of themes and the SET Inclusion Mental Health Football Programme was shown in the Culture section.

The group was presented to the Duke of Cambridge by SET CEO John Cove and they briefly discussed the mental health football scheme before taking part in a game of table football with players from the programme.

He was then presented with a pair of personalised Dons shirts for Prince George and Princess Charlotte.

The second element saw a number of performances take place at the MK Rose, including a demonstration of football skills from the SET’s adult learning disability players.

This was followed by a speech from the Prince to commemorate MK50 and wrap-up a memorable afternoon in Campbell Park.
