We are delighted to announce that our Basildon Centre has been named 'Disability Group of the Year' at a recent awards evening.

The centre, in Witchards, Basildon, picked up the accolade at the recent Southend United Community Team awards.

The prize comes after the football club's community team offered us a 10-week activity session in April on wellbeing and sport activity within the centre.  

Maggie Blackburn, service manager at the Basildon Centre, said: "We worked together really well and the sessions were really beneficial to the customers."

The awards ceremony recognised different local groups supported by Southend's community team.
