West Berkshire Mencap supporters gathered at a garden party on Monday to celebrate another year of the charity’s work in helping local children and adults with learning disabilities.

The event was held in the charity’s sensory garden and enabled West Berkshire Mencap staff, service users and volunteers to showcase the different kinds of support on offer. Guests included Mayor of Newbury Julian Swift-Hook; chairman of West Berkshire Council Cllr Quentin Webb, and Graeme Leech,  president of Newbury Rotary Club.



As well as tours of the facilities, there was afternoon tea, musical entertainment from East Woodhay Silver Band and a chance to see the Playscheme in action.



West Berkshire Mencap CEO Leila Ferguson said: “Thanks to incredible support, West Berkshire Mencap improves the lives of people with learning disabilities and their families. Our annual social gathering is our way of showing our gratitude to everyone for their hard work and support. Despite the rain, we had a great turnout and a lovely afternoon.”
