Rachel and Danny met at the Meet N Match launch event in May 2016 at Preston North End Football Club. Rachel she saw Danny across the room and thought he looked like a nice young man, but was too nervous to go and speak to him, but she told her support staff that she liked the look of him and they helped to introduce each other. “I was a bit nervous at first to speak to Danny, we had a dance at first and then got chatting.”
The couple swapped numbers and made arrangements for their first date, at The Brickworks in Accrington, and just six months later, Danny went down on one knee in Marks and Spencer’s and proposed to Rachel. “I said ‘Yes’ straight away and people in the shop were clapping for us.”
Danny made the big decision to move 50 miles from his home in Heysham, to Accrington to be with Rachel and after a short time flat hunting, they moved in together. “Now I’ve met Rachel, I’m quite happy with her and quite happy to move up here to be with her.” Explains Danny. Rachel added: “I thought about being with someone in my head and then there he was. He is my prince.” Danny explained that in the past he has had behaviour issues, Rachel explains: “Danny has a learning disability like me. But his behaviour is good now. If we are upset, we sit down and talk about it, and have a cuddle.”
