Winterton Disabled Club

To provide leisure activities for all our members no matter their disabilities. The emphasis is on having a good laugh and remain as independent as possible.

Founded 1991

  • Mission statement

    Winterton Disabled Club was created in July 1991 and has since gone from strength to strength. In 2007 the Club was shortlisted for the first Directory of Social Change Award and obtained a runner up place at the final in the "Everyday Impact" category. The presentation of the Awards took place in Central Hall, Westminster on 6/6/07. Award presented by Ed Milliband, Minister for the Voluntary Sector.

    We specialise in giving our members (mainly elderly physically disabled people) opportunities to have a good time and are never short of ideas to provide them with activities which they would not normally undertake. For example we love to dress up... Fancy dress of course!

    We organise visits by speakers on a variety of subjects but never anything depressing (no medical talks). We also hold social afternoons where members can socialise and play a variety of games.
    We have a regular assisted shopping scheme visiting supermarkets and garden centres in the area... This combined with lunch out.
    We take members to the theatre and the ballet and organise summer outings to various venues.
    We have weekly sessions of New Age Kurling opened to anyone over 50, not just to our Club members.

    We love parties and never miss an opportunity to have a good knees up!

  • Aims
