The Havering Association for people with Disabilities enjoying their Christmas buffet and being entertained by dancers


A disabled charity held its annual Christmas celebration and it was smiles all round.

Members of the Havering Association for people with Disabilities (Had), Woodhall Crescent, Hornchurch, met at The Railway Hotel, Station Lane, Hornchurch, on Friday for a special festive buffet with entertainment.

Councillor Stephanie Nunn, who was invited on the day, said: “It was a really happy atmosphere and the manager and staff deserve a mention for being so hospitable to the group.

“The entertainers were husband and wife, who danced and led a sing song to round off the party, were also wonderful.”

The event was also held in recognition of the International Day of Persons with Disabilities which was on December 3.

Had member of staff Denise Hanrahen said: “The day was very well attended and a lot of fun for everyone.

“These events give people the opportunity who don’t usually attend Christmas parties to have one especially for them.”
