The Rotary Club of Taunton is proud to provide £3,000 of sponsorship for what is thought to be the largest Inclusive Disability Ball in the south west. Now in its third year the event was attended by the new Mayor of Taunton, Fran Smith. Oake Manor Golf Club again hosted 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 this 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 was provide by DJ Dave Lee and Big Boy-Band REUNION. Participants enjoyed a two course meal and the fun of the Party Booth and 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 have been out of the reach of many people.
