Somerset's Inclusive Disability Ball 2020
Following the success of last year's Inclusive Disability Ball, the event, sponsored by the Rotary Club of Taunton and the Green Days Care Centre returns for the third year running on 21st October to Oake Manor as a non-profit event.
The Rotary Club of Taunton is once again proud to provide sponsorship for what is thought to be the largest Inclusive Disability Ball in the south west. Last year year the event was attended by the new Mayor of Taunton, Fran Smith and we hope that the impact of Coronavirus will have passed and that this year's event will now be able to take place on the the revised date 21st October. Oake Manor Golf Club will again host the event which was originally inspired by staff at Green Days Centre, an organisation working to support and train adults with learning disabilities to gain confidence, get into work and maintain independent living.
President of the Taunton Rotary Club, the Revd Tony Cox attended last year's event alongside wife Elaine, fellow Rotarians, their partners and friends. President Tony opened the event, urging all to have a fabulous time, which they certainly did, with dancing and music for all to enjoy. President Tony said, ‘We had a 'ball'. What a great event for everyone. I can't recall when I have had so much fun and this event is the perfect platform for adults and young people with learning disabilities to gain confidence and have fun. I feel sure this sell out event will help create a positive and inclusive attitude towards those with learning disabilities and the Rotary Club of Taunton is proud to provide support’.
Music will once again be provided by DJ Dave Lee and Big Boy-Band REUNION. Participants will enjoy a two course meal and have fun in the Party Booth with fireworks and pyrotechnics by Firestorm.
Both Oake Manor and Green Day’s Care Centre agree that without the support of the Rotary Club of Taunton, the ticket price at just £20 would be out of the reach of many people.
We will up-date this page should it be necessary to cancel this event due to the continuing Coronavirus safety measures.
