Uckfield Phab Magic Carpet Launch Party

Uckfield Phab are thrilled and delighted that they have received a grant from The National Lottery Community Fund to purchase a Magic Carpet for the club.

The Magic Carpet enables people with complex needs and without to interact with music activities, sports activities, reading and social activities.

Thanks to a generous grant from Uckfield Lions and together with a community Lottery Grant the club was able to purchase a ‘Magic Carpet’. The idea is that interactive images are projected onto the floor, table or onto a wheelchair this makes it totally inclusive and follows Phab’s ethos of ‘Making More of Life Together’

The club held a thank you party on Saturday 22nd of June and were honoured that the Mayor of Uckfield Cllr Spike Mayhew attended the event along with members of Uckfield Lions and Cllr Paul Sparks who is also a Trustee of the club. Members of the club enjoyed the many activities and get to use the Magic Carpet.

The Magic Carpet was first seen when Chair and Trustee Janine Williams visited a disability show in Birmingham at the NEC and was determined to fund raise for one, but luckily the support from the Lions meant they did not have to fund raise and the company that makes the unit Sensory Guru are located in Buxted so it was made locally and used locally.

The club is for ages 9 and above for people with and without disabilities and it is a chance to come to the Youth Club and have lots of fun. For more details please email uckfield.phab@gmail.com – or Telephone 01825 749826 you would be so welcome.
