A GROUP which runs night clubs for adults with learning disabilities has received a prestigious national award.

Reach 4 The Stars, a Sheffield social enterprise which runs monthly club nights across South Yorkshire, received a 2011 Erica Award for their work.

The Erica Awards are run by support provider Dimensions, to recognise groups and individuals which make a difference to the lives of people with learning disabilities and autism.

Reach 4 the Stars beat 40 other groups to be handed an award in the groups category. They set up their Under the Stars nights for adults with learning disabilities in 2007 in response to calls for more fun and safe nights out.
