A UTTOXETER organisation has presented a projector to a club providing a fun environment for people with learning disabilities and mental health issues.

The Lions Club of Uttoxeter decided to present the projector to Smile and Wave at its second meeting at the United Reformed Church.

Lions had visited the community social club during the last few months to gain an incite into what it had to offer, with a view of purchasing a piece of equipment that will prove beneficial to members.

After chats with several people in the club it was decided that a projector would suit the needs of the members best at the present time.

It was Lions member Steve Shields’ job to deliver this expensive piece of equipment to the people who attend the club.

It was received by club member Neil Basford and will be used for the showing of films at the club as well as race day afternoons and Wii contests.

A Smile and Wave spokesman said: “The club would like to thank the Lions for their valuable support for this community venture.”

The remainder of the meeting included a music quiz with three teams fighting for the top honours, refreshments and the drawing of the raffle.

Smile and Wave aims to provide a safe and fun environment for people of all abilities but especially those with learning disabilities and mental health issues to offer them a place to socialise in.
