Bryony, one of the centre’s Vice Presidents, hosted their 30th Birthday Sponsored Bounce which saw more than 40 people taking to the trampolines and bouncing over 27,000 times.

This helped to raise £1,000 towards the Wrenbury-based charity’s birthday fundraising appeal.

Over the last 30 years, the Wingate Centre has welcomed more than 10,000 visitors for respite holidays.

The team took this opportunity to thank their clients and supporters alike by opening their doors to the community and throwing a 30th birthday party.

Bryony said: “It was such an honour being part of Wingate’s 30th Birthday Party and Sponsored Bounce.

“The event went really well and I’m so glad we were able to raise funds and awareness for the charity.

“I caught up with a few old friends and met some very inspiring people who have all really felt the benefits of being part of the Wingate Community.

“Thinking about how many people the Wingate Centre has helped over the years is something really special.”
