Surrey disabled children's groups awarded £740,000

Groups that provide activities for disabled children in Surrey have been awarded almost £740,000.

The funding will go to voluntary groups including Disability Challengers, which has been given £500,000 by the county council to transform its play centre.

A panel of parents and disabled youngsters will help to allocate the rest of the money, the authority said.

Mary Angell, councillor responsible for children, said the play breaks would help parents recharge their batteries.
