Steve Cunningham lost his sight at the age of 12 but has never let his disability stop him.

So far he has achieved world records, was the world’s first blind pilot and he led his English blind football team to the World Cup.

Steve visited Kingshill Church School to talk to the students about over- coming obstacles and how to play blind football.
