Superheroes come out in full force for annual event


Staff and service users at Hightown Housing Association’s learning disability services in Berkshire came out in full force for their annual costume themed party.

Hightown’s staff hosted the event at Maidenhead disabled sports club, SportsAble, on Friday 6 September, with this year’s theme ‘Superheroes vs Villains’.

Attendees donned their capes, masks and bodysuits as they navigated their way through the venue.

Superman, Harley Quinn, Batman and more joined forces for this annual event which allows service users to create memories, have fun and socialise with residents from different schemes.

The event kicked off with food from Chucks Catering Trailers. Then all were kept busy by the array of activities on offer, such as a collection of animals brought in by Basil & Crew Mobile Farm. But the most popular activity was the djembe, an African drum played with bare hands. Staff and service users alike got involved with learning how to play the drum. Everyone loved it!

The DJ got both staff and service users on their feet and on the dance floor for a good boogie.

It was a fun and friendly affair with schemes in Bracknell, Sandhurst, Crowthorne and Wokingham joining together.

Hightown Care & Supported Housing Contracts Manager, Francis Zvoma, said:
“It was fantastic to see our service users, their families and staff enjoying themselves so much! Thank you to everyone involved in making this ‘superheroes vs villains’ event such a success. In my eyes, you are all heroes!

“A huge thanks also to Radian for funding the entertainment through their Community Grants scheme and to St. John’s Ambulance for their presence on the day and ensuring everyone was kept safe.”
