Taunton Rotary sponsors Somerset's first Disability Ball

thumbnail view

The Rotary Club of Taunton is proud to provide £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.

Staff and clients at the Green Days Centre are excited about the event. The 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 organising the event at their prestigious venue. We hope the event will be attended by all and help create a positive and inclusive attitude towards those with learning disabilities’.

Everyone is welcome at the event which will be a lively and engaging evening for all with tribute band, the Undivided, fireworks, a two course dinner 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 would be out of the reach of many people. At just £20 this is an event not to be missed.

For all those who want a good night out and support adults with learning disabilities, get your ticket now before they run out at:
