A Christmas funfest for disabled children is being organised.
Windsor Lions are staging the afternoon at Windsor Leisure Centre, Stovell Road, Windsor between 2pm and 6pm on Saturday, December 14.
Event Organiser, Lion Paul Skinner explained: “We want to put on an event that can be enjoyed by disabled children of all disabilities – physical, sensorial and learning difficulties – before Christmas, doing a wide variety of games and sports at the Leisure Centre.”
Activities on offer will include a Giant Scalextric, human table football, an obstacle course with holes to dive through, a wall to climb over, pillars to squeeze through and an 8ft wall to climb before shooting down.
Soft Play is the perfect activity for children under 1m tall. There will be a giant buzz wire, a bouncy castle and an area dedicated to SportsAble, the local disabled sports club where curling and boccia will be played. At 4pm the leisure pool will be available for the children's exclusive use with the giant wave machine and slides including the new aqua-platform slide.
Lion Paul continued: “Staging the event involves significant costs and we have been very lucky attracting local sponsors including Savills the local estate agents, precision test equipment company Instron and Waitrose."
The Royal Borough’s Neighbourhood Project has also contributed but more sponsors are needed.
Children who would like to take part are also invited to come forward - it is all free.
