Keep Mobile is a voluntary organisation providing transport for elderly and disabled people throughout the Wokingham and Bracknell Forest borough areas, including providing a significant number of journeys to passengers from within Woodley.

Cllr Sartorel chose Keep Mobile as the Mayor’s Charity for 2022/23, after attending their AGM in May and hearing first hand about the important service the organisation provides to residents across the area.

Like other charities, Keep Mobile have to raise funds to maintain the services they offer. After receiving funding from the unitary councils, together with grants from a number of town and parish councils, the organisation is still short of funds by approximately 30% and rely heavily on public generosity as well to keep the organisation running.

All profits from the event will go to Keep Mobile. 

The venue is wheelchair accessible and there is a large public car park area opposite the Centre. Alternatively, there is free parking at Woodford Park Leisure Centre.
