Spurs legends Mark Falco and Garry Brooke helped celebrate the achievements of young people with special education needs as they left school and moved on to adulthood.

It was the second celebration event organised by Enfield’s Transition Implementation Group, in partnership with Tottenham Hotspur Foundation.

The celebration recognised unique achievements of the students from special schools across Enfield by bringing them together with their family members and friends.

Twenty students and their families attended the event at the Chace Community School on 6 July 2011. Other guests included Janet Leach, Head of the Joint Service for Disabled Children; Niel Niehorster, Head of the Integrated Learning Disabilities Service; Lorraine Davies, Assistant Director - Adult Services; Julia Hopkins, Service Manager for the Children's Specialist Service, Enfield PCT and many more.

The highlight of the evening was the awards ceremony when Mark and Garry presented young people with certificates for their unique achievements.

Joanna Kaplanksi from MHJ Crausaz said: “All young people, their families, friends and us guests were very impressed by the presence of Mark and Garry. Their friendly attitude and professionalism shined through making all the young people happy."

James Isaac, Equalities and Inclusion manager at Tottenham Hotspur Foundation, added: ”We are very proud to be part of this celebration event and to continue to add value and enhance the lives of many disabled young people who are now moving on to adult services. We are very keen to continue our transition partnership work with Enfield's Joint Service for Disabled Children and the Integrated Learning Disabilities Service.”

The highlights of the evening were captured and shared with us by Art’s Camera Club - a user-led group of adults with learning disabilities.
