A Fenland charity is enjoying using the latest in 21st century technology after being awarded a bumper £3,500 Lottery grant.

Wisbech PHAB, which runs adult and junior social clubs for both disabled and able-bodied people, has been able to purchase a new touch-screen thanks to funding from the Lottery’s Awards for All scheme.

The screen will be used by both the clubs at The Oasis Centre, where they meet, for things like playing games, watching television and DVDs, listening to music, and accessing the Internet.

The screen will also be used by other groups at The Oasis Centre, as well as for training days and teaching youngsters how to use Internet social media sites responsibly.

It is also easily adjustable in height, making it accessible for children and wheelchair users, too.

Club leader Carol Alderton thanked local business Crowson and Ward for its “excellent service” in supplying the touchscreen, and also staff at The Oasis for their continued support.

Wisbech PHAB currently runs its adult club on alternate Tuesdays, and junior club on alternate Fridays.

The junior club launched back in March and is welcoming new members and both clubs are appealing for new volunteers, particularly drivers, to enable them to use the PHAB bus. Training is given to drivers and expenses paid.

For more information on joining the clubs or becoming a volunteer, contact Carol on 01945 700063 or email: carol.alderton@btinternet.com
