First Wadebridge Community Day is a success

The John Betjeman Centre was a buzz on Saturday, 29th October for its first Wadebridge Community Day.


More than 80 people came to meet with representatives form 23 different organisations, charities and support groups. They handed out leaflets and free goodies.


The day was organised by Concern Wadebridge, which is based at the Betjeman Centre, and supported by Age UK Cornwall as part of its Go For Gold celebrations.


During the day Julia Treglown held two sponsored aerobics sessions, including a chair-based event which has helped to raise more than £1,000 which will be divided between Concern Wadebridge and Macmillan Cancer Support.


Concern Wadebridge manager Emma Burt said: “We were overwhelmed by the response. Seeing so many people talking and groups networking between each other was really rewarding. I just wish we had thought of it sooner.

“A massive thank you to Julia for organised the sponsored aerobics and to all the people that took part to make the event such a success also a special mention to Vitality Chi for their generous donation.”
