A Windsor Lions event for children with disabilities and their families was a roaring success as hundreds of visitors attended.

More than 300 people turned out to the Lions’ sixth annual funfest at Windsor Leisure Centre representing different charities, including a number of special schools, from all over London and the Home Counties.

Many families - mums, dads and siblings - with a total of 142 disabled children arrived on the day and enjoyed an afternoon of recreational activities including a sot play area, indoor cricket, an obstacle course, bouncy castles and a bungee run.

Event organiser Paul Skinner said: “What a great time we all had. From small beginnings six years ago, the funfest has gained huge additional support with a great number of families attending from a very wide area of the South East and all thoroughly enjoying themselves.

“The sheer delight on the faces of so many youngsters was a real picture. That’s all our club wanted – to ensure we delivered a great fun event for as many youngsters as possible and we did just that. 

“We are very grateful to the leisure centre management for their wonderful support. 

“Roll on next year – we will hope for even more to enjoy.”
