Obstacle courses and curling were just some of the activities on offer at the second 'Funfest'. 


Organised by the Windsor Lions, the day-long event at Windsor Leisure Centre in Stovell Road is exclusive to children with disabilities and their families. 

"The day is about providing fun for disabled children," said organiser Paul Skinner. 

"The bottom line is everyone is in the same boat and everyone understands each other."

From 2pm, children could tackle an obstacle course or try their hand at curling with members of disability charity, SportsAble

Exclusive access to the swimming pool was also available from 3pm. 

The free event has grown in size since it was first held last year with 250 people turning up on the day. 

"We contact local charities and ask them to publicise the event," Paul added. 

"Last year we contacted eight charities, this year it was 22 so we have had more people this year."

Funfest took place on Sunday, March 1.
