Wade Needs Your Fundraising Help!

Friends of Wade (FOW) has successfully raised thousands of pounds for Wade over the years, but in the last year, we have been unable to hold many of our normal fundraising events due to Covid-19. That, combined with the estimated losses to the charity this year due to the enforced closures during lockdowns, has meant anticipated losses of just over £100,000 in our current financial year.

With the possibility of some daylight ahead, we are seeking keen fundraisers to join our 'Friends of Wade' fundraising committee.

If you are interested in getting involved, please email Philip Mirfin, Wade Chairman.
