The Rotary Club of Taunton is delighted to announce that the Disability Ball for 2021 will now take place on 27th October after two years absence due to the Coronavirus Lockdown. It's already a sell out success and will no doubt prove to be an enjoyable and fun evening for all those that attend. The event will be held at Oake Manor Disability Ball Information and includes two course dinner, dancing to a DJ and live music from the Boy Band 'Reunion'. Activities include a fun costume photo booth, fireworks by Firestorm and other treats. Read about the last Inclusive Disability Ball and how much it benefits all those that participate.
The Rotary Club of taunton has been working with the Taunton based charity the Green Days Centre for a number of years. Green days is an organisation working to support and train adults with learning disabilities to gain confidence, get into work and maintain independent living.
At our last Disability Ball in 2019, the then President of the Taunton Rotary Club, the Revd Tony Cox opened the event, and urged 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’.
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.
