Kadeem Harris recently surprised a charitable Wednesdayite with a message of congratulations for his incredible fundraising achievements.
Special Olympics GB athlete Niall Guite has raised over £4,000 by drawing football stadiums as part of the 2.6 challenge.
The 2.6 challenge aims to support charities that have lost out on funding due to major events being cancelled as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, such as the London Marathon.
Niall began by drawing 26 football stadiums to raise £260, but his artwork has taken off so well that he is now taking commissions in an attempt reach his new target of £5,000.
To congratulate the 25-year-old on his achievements, Owls winger Kadeem joined a zoom call with Niall and ESPN presenter Alexis Nunes.
Kadeem’s appearance certainly caught Niall off-guard, and the Owls winger was full of praise for his charitable endeavours.

Kadeem said to Niall: “I just wanted to congratulate you and tell you I think what you have done is amazing.
“Me and the boys are extremely proud of you. It was a very good idea and what you have done is exceptional.”
