In pictures: Festive fun at Lions Club of Windsor event

The first ever Lions Club of Windsor FunFest for disabled children was a triumph on Saturday.

The event, held at the leisure centre in Stovell Road, Windsor, attracted 168 people, including children, parents and carers, from across the Royal Borough, Berkshire, and as far afield as West London.

Among them was Vivi Gregory-Osborne, the seven-year-old from Windsor who has cerebral palsy and is undergoing pioneering treatment to enable her to walk.

SportsAble, the Maidenhead-based disabled sporting club, was also represented.

Its president John Jenkins is a longstanding member of Windsor Lions.

He described some of the thrilling games and attractions the Lions had organised.

"We had an amazing array of games including an 'altitude' obstacle course in which children could go up and down in a wonderful rubber monstrosity," he said.

"There was a big version of the table football game, where children taking part were attached to huge poles and had to move sideways with them.

"Everyone wanted to go into the pool - it was absolutely fantastic.

"We had contacted 70 charities to let them know about the event which was being run for the first time. I am sure we will be doing this again."
