Diverse Disco - what a blast!

Diverse Disco - what a blast!

DATE: 17.05.2023

People we support across Choice Care had a fantastic time at the ‘Diverse Disco’ on Monday 15th May 2023! One of our fantastic managers from the Swindon region has been running a group which holds accessible and inclusive events aimed at people with disabilities. Their regular ‘Diverse Disco’ is held on Tuesday evenings at a community centre in, and is attended by a lot of Choice Care homes in the Swindon area.

On 15th May, the team hired out Swindon’s night club ‘Tree’ for their Diverse Disco – which was an incredible success! Katie, who set up the disco said: ‘It was amazing to see people making new friends and dancing their hearts out, the smiles and happiness from everyone was overwhelming. We’d like to say a massive thank you to Tree Swindon, and to everyone who helped with the evening – it was absolutely fantastic and we are blown away by the support for this event.’

Viv from Ballards Ash, who attended the event said: ‘Fantastic night at the diverse disco, everyone danced for hours! Loved the experience.’

Valerie Michie, Choice Care CEO, who attended the event said: ‘Clubbing at the diverse disco was a night of pure joy – the dancefloor was packed and there was a brilliant feeling of togetherness. Music, friends, lights, good times and dancing. Everyone wanted to know when the next one would be…..the organisers, Katie and Rachael, have created something quite wonderful and I loved coming along for the night. They are amazing women who I have the utmost respect for. Choice will be delighted to support them in any way we can.’
