The Town Mayor Councillor Tony Lack and his Mayoress visited the Wade stall
in Market Place, Wokingham, on Saturday 12th September 2020. We were
delighted to see them and everyone else who came to support us on the day. The stall
was aimed at raising awareness for the charity, particularly in these times
of crisis where funding is a huge challenge, and also the Wade 150 Club, as we are still looking to
further expand the membership numbers.
Wade 150 Club

Wade has launched a new fundraising lottery - the Wade 150 Club - to boost funds for the Day Centre
in this time of crisis and to reward its supporters.
Here is the Wokingham Paper's coverage of the new venture.
Over lockdown we were busy delivering gift bags with goodies and treats to our Members. Many of them live alone or have been in isolation for months, and we just
wanted to let them know that we are missing and thinking about them all.
Huge thanks to Tesco Wokingham and Waitrose & Partners Wokingham for their generosity and very kind donations that helped us to achieve this.

Wade held a fundraising charity fashion show ‘girls night out’ on Wednesday 4 March 2020 at Wade Day Centre
in Wokingham in conjunction with ‘Travelling Trends’ (Fundraising Fashion Shows) who provided two models.
There were also four volunteer models, including two Wade staff.
After the show there was an opportunity to shop and browse through the wonderful outfits available to buy
through Travelling Trends.
There was a huge amount of interest in this event and tickets were sold out well in advance of the show.
The organiser was ‘Friend of Wade’ Sally Newlove. We raised a fantastic total of £1,160 for Wade through
ticket, raffle and refreshment sales.
Many thanks to Sally and all involved for their hard work and efforts.
