Kenilworth club for the disabled could close after 40 years

Leamington Editorial 26th Jan, 2023   0

A CLUB in Kenilworth looks set to close due to lack of volunteers.

Kenilworth Phab, which provides social opportunities for disabled and non-disabled adults, is in serious danger of closing after 40 years.

It is in desperate need of volunteers and as a result has put out an appeal for new members to join in, help organise activities and, potentially, become involved in the management of the club.

The club has been organising social activities, holidays and outings for its members since its formation in 1982 and would like to carry on doing so long into the future.

The club currently has around 30 members and is an independent registered charity, affiliated to the national Phab Charity.

Chairperson, Martyn Parker, said “I love being part of this club because everybody accepts and respects everyone else and we have great fun together. It is wonderful to have watched the development of many of our members and seen how their personalities have blossomed during their time with us.

“If this Phab Club was forced to close it would be a disaster for many of our members, but also a great loss to the local community.”
