What a PHAB Christmas Party – Cllr Elliott joins in the festivities

Last night I had the honour of being invited to the PHAB Christmas Party where I was able to share in the festivities and meet with some of the children and the volunteers who keep this wonderful charity going. In particular, I would like to mention Joyce Pearson and Paul Wenham, both long term Whitton supporters and tireless campaigners for good causes. Also special thanks must go to Pollly, who I had the privilege to present her with a Christmas present, and leads the Whitton PHAB group. And finally all the volunteers who give up their time to help out and on which charities such as this rely on.

Cllr Elliott said: "Promoting inclusion within the wider community is the mantra behind PHAB and at their Christmas party, which i was honoured to attend, I saw this in action. This is a fantastic group and I welcome all the children and volunteers a very Merry Christmas and I look forward to seeing them again in the New Year."

Phab’s aim is to promote and encourage people of all abilities to come together on equal terms, to achieve complete inclusion within the wider community. Activities include table tennis, Wii, arts and crafts, trips and pool.
The group meet on a Monday night, 7.00 to 9.00pm at Whitton Community Centre:
