A women’s support group met with the Mayor of Redbridge last week to enjoy a special lunch.

Members of Redbridge Disabled Women’s Welfare Association (RDWWA) met with Councillor Linda Huggett last Thursday to share their stories.

The group, which is a lifeline in the borough for many of its members, was founded in 1993 to help disabled and elderly women in the area, but expanded its work into mental health and campaign issues.

It now offers counselling, therapy, regular meetings and outings, as well as yoga and physical exercise.

The event was organised by the groups chairwoman Abida Iqbal and held at her home in Albans Road, Ilford.

She said: “Everyone felt very excited and honoured to meet the mayor and had a very pleasant afternoon with delicious lunch.

“They all thanked me for arranging such a wonderful afternoon.

“The Mayor also appreciated all the effort made and enjoyed herself immensely.”
