Papworth Trust is celebrating its 100th anniversary on Wednesday 13th September and we are delighted that our local community will be joining in with the festivities.

Our centres across the East of England will be hosting their own events as well as kind-hearted businesses and supporters.

There will also be a big exhibition at Papworth Everard Village Hall involving our Centenary Circle and we will be launching our ‘100 Stories’ anniversary book.
