A group of disabled children are going on a dream holiday to Disneyland Paris thanks to a mammoth fundraising effort.

Bath conductor Grenville Jones raised £20,000 to organise the trip for the Super Saturday Club, which is part of Mencap Keynsham and meets once a week at Three Ways School.

Club leader and parent Kim Coles, from Paulton, said she was absolutely delighted with the response from those who got involved.

She said: "Grenville is a very special man who has supported our very special children.

"He has pulled out all the stops and has supported us in so many ways."

A number of individuals and groups, including Bath Rotary Club and Bath Lions, have donated money to the good cause over the past few months.

Mr Jones has also been selling copies of a Christmas CD, which featured five of his choirs and made a staggering £5,000 towards the trip.

Now the total money has been raised, the children are getting ready to leave for Disneyland Paris on Friday, May 10.

Mr Jones said he was so pleased he had been able to make the dream holiday a reality.

He said: "They are very special children and they deserve a super holiday.

"A big thank you to everyone who helped me make this possible and especially Tim Giles of World Market Travel."
