​Nearly 100 disabled residents across the county enjoyed a special prom night this month, in an annual celebration event in Kettering. 

Olympus Care Services hosted the Glitter Ball at Kettering Conference Centre for local people with physical and learning disabilities and families who have received support.

The glitzy affair celebrated deserving local residents who receive care and support in the county with an evening of entertainment, after thousands of pounds of funds was raised throughout the year to subside the event.

Olympus Care Services first launched the event in 2014 to provide a celebration for disabled residents, who often struggle in social situations. 

The prom is now in its fifth year and has grown in popularity, welcoming residents from across the county with complex needs.

Cabinet member for adult social care, Cllr Sandra Naden-Horley said:

 

"Most people have fond memories of attending a school prom with dinner and dancing but for many people with disabilities, attending such an event is only a dream. This event is a chance for our county's disabled residents to enjoy a well-deserved evening to celebrate, which is something many of us take for granted all year long."

Event organiser and Olympus Care Services Manager, Emma Davies Rota said:

 

"The staff at Kettering Conference Centre have been brilliant over the years.  They  work really well with us and really understand the needs of the customers. Each year I get asked by the customers when is the next Glitter Ball straight after the ball has just ended.  It is wonderful to see the excitement building up to the event and all the joy it brings people on the night."
