Andrew Blake, Day Services manager for Bromley borough, said: "The event was for people who use our services and for people in the local community.

"In total around 200 people attended.

"We had a range of stalls with people selling their produce.

"We turned our sensory room into a Santa's Grotto, which was nice for the kids to go to, and had boccia sessions, which is a form of bowls for adults with complex needs.

"It was a great day, I was really proud of my staff, they worked really hard and a lot of people gave up their time.

"It demonstrated to me the value we have within our local community."
