The Prime Minister checked in with a charity she has supported for many years on Friday.
Maidenhead MP Theresa May visited SportsAble in Braywick Road, which harnesses the power of sport to assist people with disabilities, helping individuals keep fit and make friends.
She said: “I’ve supported SportsAble over the years because of the fantastic work that it does, providing for disabled people to get involved in sport.
“It’s doing a tremendous job in our community for disabled people.”
SportsAble’s CEO Kerl Haslam said: “One of the things that really caught the prime minister’s attention was hearing about our outreach programmes, as we’ve outgrown our current premises and are now taking sport to people in care homes and hospitals.”
SportsAble members have represented Great Britain in 11 Paralympic Games since the club formed in 1975.
