The Chosen Charity for 2017/18 is PHAB Epsom & Ewell

"Epsom & Ewell PHAB aims to bring together young people with and without physical disabilities. Through having fun doing inclusive activities together they can learn more about each other. We have over 100 members aged 8 to 18 years and are entirely run by volunteers – we have no paid staff. Each Friday evening we have club meetings at Nescot where we do sports such as football, tennis, unihoc [indoor hockey with soft sticks] and basketball. We do dance, crafts, play games and run a tuck shop. We also have a busy programme of events and outings including Watersports day, climbing evening at High Ashurst, performing a ‘PHAB’s Got Talent’ show as part of the Epsom Arts Festival and having a family quiz night. Each year we take a group of young people on an adventure holiday where they can do activities such as rock climbing, canoeing, abseiling and orienteering. All our activities are available to everyone, whatever their disability, on equal terms. We really do welcome the support of Probus to help us provide opportunities to so many young people. I look forward to hearing when you may be able to call in and visit us”.

This Club has a similarity to ours but with an age difference and some of us must take up the offer and make a visit to their meeting place at NESCOT. To visit the PHAB website, click on PHAB Website.
