A brand new event created especially for disabled children is set to launch in Windsor next month.
Windsor Lions will stage its first ever Christmas Funfest on Thursday, December 14, at Windsor Leisure Centre.
The event will take place in the afternoon and is free.
Activities will include a giant Scalextric, human table football, an obstacle course, and an area dedicated to disabled sports charity SportsAble where curling and boccia will be played.
At 4pm the swimming pool will be available for the children's exclusive use.
"We want to put on an event where as many disabled children of all disabilities – physical, sensorial and learning difficulties – from the local area can get together and enjoy themselves before Christmas doing a wide variety of games and sports at the leisure centre," said organiser Lion Paul Skinner.
He thanked the leisure centre management, and sponsors including Savills, Instron and Waitrose for their support, as well as the Royal Borough's Neighbourhood Project.
So far more than 70 children have registered but more are welcome.
Additional sponsors are also required.
