Concern Wadebridge celebrates 40 years of supporting people in Wadebridge and outlying areas. Over those years the charity has strived to make a difference to the lives of local people using the centre. Every day there are various activities, offering a wide range of support, whilst also offering a place where people can meet friends old and new, share memories, a joke or just catch up on news over a cuppa and a tea cake!
Over this time, the Charity has developed into one of the leading charities in Cornwall providing support to those over 50. This will continue over the coming year (s) as we continue to develop to meet the challenges whatever they might be.
This year we are looking at developing new services, some in partnership with other charities, we are also looking at providing a volunteer car service that will help people to get their medical and social appointments. Just before Christmas we launched Access Wadebridge, a service where people can borrow mobility scooters, wheelchairs and walking aids, helping them to get out and about in Wadebridge.
The charity is supported by a core of volunteers, who provide a welcome at the centre and for those wanting light refreshments; a team of volunteers provide the tea and coffees. As we develop new services, we will need to recruit new volunteers to support our work. If you are looking for a new challenge, either at the centre or as a volunteer car driver and enjoy meeting people, please contact Andy Lyle on 01208 812392.
