The Hub is organising a summer ball for disabled people in Epsom
The Hub Epsom will be holding a summer ball on Thursday, September 7, to celebrate its third anniversary. The charity will be holding a disco in Elements Nightclub, in Epsom, and are encouraging others, especially disabled people and their carers, to join them for an evening of dancing and celebration.
Since it opened in September 2010, Hub Epsom has helped customers with over 3,000 enquiries on a broad range of disability issues, giving advice and information on benefits, advocacy, transport and where to buy equipment. Their aim is to enable disabled people to stay as independent as possible.
The anniversary event is being held in association with the Surrey Independent Living Council, an organisation that helps people with disabilities, and the Surrey Police who are helping with the event as part of their commitment towards the reporting of disability hate crime.
Sarah Lynch, senior volunteer development worker said: "We were contacted by Gabi McKeown at Elements, who suggested the idea for a summer ball. Elements positively encourages disabled people to dance the night away with them but recognise that for some disabled people the idea of an evening at a nightclub might seem a little daunting. Elements is accessible for disabled people, with lots of seating inside and parking available to the rear of the premises. Many of our volunteers already have their tickets and are planning what to wear on the night!"
Hub Summer Ball, Elements nightclub, SpreadeagleWalk, Epsom. September 7.
A limited number of tickets priced £5 are available from the Hub, 131 High Street, Epsom, on a first-come-first-served basis.
