Kids from a Bexleyheath special needs school were treated to a day out at Chessington World of Adventures by a charity.

Pupils from Oakwood School, on Woodside Road, Bexleyheath, were treated to a fun day at the theme park along with 32 other schools on Tuesday (May 29) on invitation from The Lady Taverners.

The Lady Taverners is part of The Lord Taverners, a disability sports charity.

Its president Angela Rippon said: “Our fun days give youngsters with disabilities and special needs the opportunity to get out and enjoy new places and experiences and make new friends.

“Sport and recreation are essential for young people, particularly those with special needs.”
