Gold, silver and bronze medals were given out on Sunday as the 40th Slough Games for people with physical and learning disabilities brought sporting glory to enthusiastic competitors.

It was the team from Windsor Mencap that scooped many of the awards.

The event was run as usual by the Participation, Association, Leisure and Sports Club (PALS) at its headquarters at the Stoke Park Trust for the Disabled in Northern Road, Slough. It was supported as usual by Slough Rotary Club.

The Mayor of Slough Cllr Ishrat Shah officially started things off and before long the team from Windsor Mencap had scored a smattering of bronze and silver medals across a range of activities - with Heather Ifill and Derek Shepherd winning 'special' awards for committed performances in archery and pool respectively.

The team's performance was topped off by Dougal Watson dramatically winning gold in the pool tournament.

Windsor Mencap chairman Adrian Greensmith said: "I'm grateful to the organisers for once again putting on a fabulous event and to our volunteers Stephanie Gumbs and her partner Patrick but most of all I am so proud of my team who put in such a strong games performance."

The Participation, Association, Leisure and Sports Club (PALS) goes from strength to strength, giving disabled people across Berkshire and Buckinghamshire the opportunity of taking part in sport and physical recreation as well as other social activities in and around Slough.
