Trowbridge unemployed group raise money for Wiltshire Air Ambulance
An enterprising group of unemployed people raised £1,200 for Wiltshire Air Ambulance through a fun day at Trowbridge’s Wesley Road Club on Sunday.
The group, from the South West Regional Assessment Centre (SWRAC), organised a raffle, stalls and a skittles competition. The organisation runs projects with Job Centre Plus as well as Odeon and Premier Inn, with the jobseekers being given interviews in return. This could see them getting jobs at the new St Stephen’s Place development, which opens in October.
Adrian Gunner, SWRAC managing director, said: “They’ve worked hard as a team and put together a great event in just five weeks.
"This project gives participants confidence and also shows that they are not what people perceive unemployed people to be.”
