A roaring success.

That was the verdict by everyone involved with Windsor Lions' Funfest on Sunday at Windsor Leisure Centre in Stovell Road.

The event for disabled children and their families was attended by almost 300 people - a 50% increase on last year.

Charities and special schools from across the area were represented. Mums, dads, siblings and carers joined with 180 disabled children to enjoy an afternoon of spectacular recreational activities.

There was human table football, a ten pin skittles alley, an obstacle course, bouncy castles, even a bungee run. Then came the chance to play in the leisure pool.

The event was sponsored by the estate agent Savills of Windsor. It was attended by the Royal Borough's Deputy Mayor Councillor John Lenton and Deputy Mayoress Margaret Lenton.

Windsor Lions’ President, Lion Dave Voyce said: “From small beginnings, 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.

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