Sixties superstar Roger Daltrey rocked up at the Elephant this week to help launch a sports project for disabled people.

The lead singer and founder of The Who stood alongside his former band manager Bill Curbishley and Bill’s former footballing brother, Alan Curbishley to celebrate the start of Into Sport in Southwark.

The celebrity trio were joined by clients from the Southwark Disablement Association (SDA), who were ready for kick off at the Geraldine Harmsworth Park sports facility as the lottery-funded project hopes to see 50 disabled people a year supported into sporting activity in the borough. “There aren’t enough activities for disabled people,” said rock legend, Daltrey “and I just think things like this build a better community all round.

“A lot of disabled people end up isolated so this is a great programme,” added Bill Curbishley.
