The Rotary Club of Taunton is proud to have provided £3,000 of sponsorship for what is thought to be the largest ‘Disability Ball’ in the south west and the first of its kind in Somerset.  Organised by Oake Manor Golf Club the event was inspired by a member of staff at Green Days Centre, which is an organisation working with and for those with learning disabilities.

The The event took place on 20th June and was an amazng success. Green Days Centre provides support and training for adults with learning disabilities to gain confidence, get into work and maintain independent living.  Neslee Staple, a worker for Green Days said; ‘This event is the perfect platform for our clients to gain confidence and have fun. We are so grateful to the Rotary Club for their sponsorship and Oake Manor for initiating and organising the event at their prestigious venue. The event was a sell out and we hope it will help create a positive and inclusive attitude towards those with learning disabilities’.

The eventwas a lively and engaging evening for all who came with tribute band, the Undivided, fireworks, a two course dinner, face painting and an amazing chocolate fountain.

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 have been out of the reach of many people.
