Our thanks go to everyone at Rotary Club of Crewe and Nantwich Weaver for their support of the Wingate Centre. Their recent charity golf day raised an impressive £1500 on our behalf. Thanks to all the players and everyone who supported them and an extra-special thanks to their President Terry and his wife Judy for making me feel so very welcome at their celebration dinner!
Thanks so much to colleagues and shoppers at Co-op Stapeley who presented our Chairman Geoff Parsons with a fabulous donation at their community day recently. This significant sum of money will really help us to brighten the lives of our very special visitors. Co-op customers have raised, just by doing their normal shopping and scanning their Member’s card, a huge sum for each of the following three charities;
Thanks to everyone involved!
Chris Pywell climbs Kilimanjaro, raising over £2,300 for four local charities and community groups – including the Wingate Centre!
This September, Chris Pywell and a team of 14 brave adventurers set out to climb Kilimanjaro in aid of four vital north-west charities and community groups – of which the Wingate Centre was one! The team have set a target between them to raise a staggering £30k to be split between the charities and Chris himself has, so far, raised £2.3k! Any help to push the team towards their target of £30k will be greatly appreciated…
The Nutickets site contains an exciting day-to-day recap of the trip as well as where to go to show support for the phenomenal causes.
Our quiz night on Friday 17th November at Nantwich Cricket Club was great fun. 10 teams of 6 battled each other – getting quite competitive too! – and it was great to see so many people there supporting our cause. Together they raised an impressive £600! Their generosity will help us to enrich the lives of the disabled children and young adults who visit us for holidays – thank you. Watch this space for details of our next quiz night…
The brilliant team at Bakkavor have done it again! They have raised an astonishing £4222 for The Wingate Centre by taking part in Tough Mudder North West again this year; the second-year running that they have raised vital funds for us by taking on this ultimate endurance challenge. This really is an incredible achievement. Thank you so much to everyone who took part and all their supporters.
It was our absolute pleasure to welcome Martin and Brendan from Wychwood Park Golf Club to the Wingate Centre in November. We were delighted to be chosen as their nominated charity for President’s Day where the golfers raised a phenomenal £1200 for our great cause! Thank you so much to everyone who made us feel so welcome and raised this significant amount of money.
Great news! We are delighted that local team Malpas Women’s FC have chosen to support the Wingate Centre this season – thank you so much. Here is Team Manager Natalie Leroux-Fleming proudly displaying the kit with our name on. We think it looks fantastic and out thanks go to all the players – good luck this season everyone!
It was a pleasure to visit Combermere Abbey in November and accept their very kind and generous donation to the Wingate Centre. We were delighted to be chosen as one of their nominated charities during their Open Gardens event earlier this Autumn. Thank you to all the staff and visitors who supported us and made us feel so welcome.
Once again the hard-working grads from ATOS have volunteered their time to help us out here at the Wingate Centre. Last week the latest cohort spent a day with us and they painted and cleaned and did a wonderful job tidying up our front garden. Some of the grads also helped us with some desk-based research. Not only this, the team also raised funds on the day by smashing their own targets and they also raised funds by organising a quiz night. In total they have raised a massive £509.39 – thank you all so much! Some of this money will be invested in plants to build on the great work the grads did on our front garden. The rest will help our very special visitors to have the holiday of a lifetime. Thank you!
Local Co-Op stores make a big impact with an impressive start to their support of the Wingate Centre!
Not only that but a number of store managers and area managers kindly volunteered their time and have recently helped us to paint both outside and our upstairs corridor as part of our refurbishment programme. What a wonderful achievement, thank you so much!
We look forwards to sharing more updates with you from the team at the Co-Op who have recently chosen us as their nominated charity.
We know they have lots of ideas and bundles of energy and enthusiasm and we are delighted that they have agreed to support the Wingate Centre. Watch this space!
