Here at the Wingate Centre we believe that everyone deserves equal access to positive opportunities and experiences that improve their quality of life and well being regardless of ability.

We aim to provide a Centre of excellence for inclusive, accessible Residential Sport and Recreational facilities that allow those with Special Educational Needs to be active and improve their physical and mental health.

The long term survival of our Centre is in danger.  Due to the Coronavirus our vulnerable clients have stopped exercise classes and school bookings for residential breaks have been cancelled or postponed meaning our income will be greatly reduced for the foreseeable future.  In addition, we have been forced to cancel or postpone our fundraising events for the next 3 months resulting in the loss of 25% of our income.

We are very grateful to have received your support both in the past and for many of you it is ongoing as part of our #2020 Campaign.

Are you able to help?

  • Online shopping – easy fundraising
  • Ebay / Amazon Smile
  • Clear out and donate to Audlem charity shop who generously support the Wingate Centre.
  • Donate via the website.

Help us re start activities when the virus danger passes.

Thank You.
