A charity that provides transport for people with disabilities and mobility difficulties in the Royal Borough held a Christmas party for them on Saturday.
People to Places held its festive bash at the offices of Hitachi, in Whitebrook Park, Lower Cookham Road.
About 70 people turned out for the event and revelled in the Christmas spirit by singing carols and enjoying sherry and mince pies.
A display of belly dancing also wowed the guests.
The charity’s work includes the dial-a-ride service which provides transport for those unable to travel unassisted to places like the shops.
It also runs a Shopmobility scheme which offers disabled people wheelchairs and mobility equipment when they are doing their shopping.
People to Places manager Peter Haley said: “As general manager I spend a lot of time in the office and don’t get the chance to see members as much as I’d like.
“It really gave a sense of Christmas coming.”
