A Doncaster community organisation is set to move to a new premises for their social pub, which is aimed at adults with a disability and their friends. The Doncaster Inclusive Centre of Excellence, better known as DICE, are set to make the Doncaster Trades and Labour Club their new home after a rapid rise in numbers attending meant that their existing premises were no longer of sufficient size.
For the last 12 months DICE has been based in the Blues Bar at Doncaster Deaf Trust, where those attending enjoy a social drink, play a few games of bingo and sing karaoke.
Over 150 people attend every week over the two nights thanks to the hard work and dedication from DICE staff and volunteers.
It is hoped that the new town centre location, and close proximity to the Bus and Train Station, will attract many new visitors. Colin Findley, founder and Director of DICE, said: “The much bigger space will allow us to continue to grow and engage more disabled people in great social activities and events.
“We are grateful to both the Deaf Trust for their support in helping us to establish this great project, but also the management committee at the Trades for allowing us to use their facilities and giving their full support to helping us to continue to grow.”
Doncaster Mayor Roz Jones will officially open the premises for DICE’s social pub on Thursday, March 5.
