The New Horizons Club has been offering new opportunities to Tasmanian's with disabilities since 1986.

The organisation will celebrate its 30th anniversary by hosting a fundraising gala night this month.

The club, which is based in the North of the state, provides sport and recreation programs to more than 350 members.

New Horizons manager Belinda Kitto said the club was unique to the state.

“It’s like another family to a lot of our members and gives them that social network and somewhere to feel safe, many of our members say they don’t know where they’d be without the club,” she said.

“It provides them with self confidence and gives them great opportunities that they may never have had otherwise.”

The ‘Born in the 80s’ gala night aims to raise $30,000 for the club.

“It’s an important fundraiser for us, it’s how we survive and how we continue to provide the opportunities for the community,” Ms Kitto said.

The event will be held at the Grand Chancellor in Launceston on Saturday October 29.
