A CENTRE that provides a space for the elderly to spend the day has been celebrating its 50th anniversary.

The Wade Day Centre in Wokingham celebrated the anniversary with around 100 people and a performance from harpist Louise Cordell on Friday, February 8.

Other guests included the Wokingham Borough Mayor John Kaiser, Wokingham Town Mayor Julian McGhee-Sumner and the charities patron Lady Elizabeth Godsal.

Jackie Wilson, Chair of Wade, said: “Wade is the charity Day Centre for the elderly population of Wokingham and is very proud to be celebrating 50 years of serving the community.

"We were fortunate to have a number of the local Air Cadets and some young ladies from the Holt school who were serving canapes and drinks to the guests. It was an excellent evening and much enjoyed by all."

The centre provides the elderly with a warm and safe environment where they can socialise with friends and meet new people.
