A powerful cause.
At the beginning of the first lockdown, the amazing athletes of Special Olympics GB embarked on the 2.6 challenge.
As a talented artist, Niall decided to draw his favourite stadiums from around the world. What started as a challenge to draw 26 soon snowballed. Niall has now illustrated over 100 stadiums and picked up some very famous fans – including Grayson Perry and Rodri, the Manchester City midfielder.
Niall is now selling his artwork to help raise more money for Special Olympics GB, a charity helping people with intellectual disabilities achieve the incredible. As a Special Olympics World Games gold medallist, he knows their work first hand.

A percentage of profits go to Special Olympics GB. Helping people with intellectual disabilities achieve the incredible.
Niall has three major passions: sport, art and helping people. His unique illustrations bring them all together.
Over the years, Niall has overcome many of the challenges his autism presents. However, while never lacking in enthusiasm, he sometimes struggled with communicating – and this knocked his confidence.
With the support of Special Olympics GB, Niall has flourished. Growing in self belief, he now boasts an enviable collection of medals!
Now Niall wants to give back. And you can help. By picking up an illustration of your favourite stadium, you can support the awesome work Special Olympics GB do to support the leadership and entrepreneurial skills of their incredible athletes.
