A group of young people with disabilities had plenty of fun at an annual gala, thanks to help from Preston-based Mosaic Care Group.

Instead of using a traditional float at Penwortham Gala, using specially adapted ‘accessible bikes’ provided by Wheels for all and UCLan, the youngsters cycled the procession accompanied by their care-workers, siblings and family members.

Cyclones Cheerleaders also volunteered their time creating a real carnival atmosphere during the procession.

Mosaic Care Group won the Best Smaller Group award, donating their cash prize to The Katy Holmes Trust for which managing director Claire Fryer is a patron.

Claire said: “We adopted a can do attitude, it was great to see our young service-users able to take part in the procession, and the feedback from their families was fantastic – we’ll definitely be looking to do the same again next year.”
