2024/03/01 – First Friday Networking – From 9.30am Friday 1st March 2024

We Are Wakefield members and first timers will enjoy breakfast, networking and hearing from our speakers, Paul Cartwright of Pontefract Civic Society and the Wellbeing Lead from The Prince of Wales Hospice.

We’ll take a brief tour of the history of Pontefract and hear about the work of the Civic Society.

We’ll also hear about the exciting plans for a £250k garden project at The Prince of Wales Hospice to enable all patients, whether bed bound or not, to be able to access the gardens, receiving the health & wellbeing benefits of being outside.

Your mission throughout the morning will be to form new connections through great conversations!  Make 2024 your year for WAW COLLABORATION!
