Merton Council’s All Saints Centre has launched a new DJ skills project for people with learning disabilities to help them run their own night club called ‘Funky Feet’.
Eight people with learning disabilities took part in the DJ skills project at the centre in Wimbledon where Nick Carling from fresh track DJ workshops taught them how to use professional equipment and put on a DJ set.
Making sure their DJ skills are put to good use, the team at All Saints have relaunched Funky Feet night club which gives people with a learning disability a chance to have a dance and socialise with their friends. Over 100 people attended the first Funky Feet nightclub event earlier this year at Tooting and Mitcham KNK Stadium with further nights being planned over the summer.
Merton Council’s Director of Community and Housing Simon Williams said: “I’m delighted to see that the All Saints Centre is providing a wide range of workshops for people with learning disabilities in Merton. I’d like to congratulate everyone who took part in the DJ skills workshop and put on a great night at the Funky Feet nightclub.”
If you know someone who would like to attend one of the Funky Feet nights, get in touch with the All Saints Centre on 020 8274 5388 or email AllSaintsCentre@merton.gov.uk.
