Compaid passes Go on new themed Monopoly set
Kent based disability charity Compaid was delighted to be featured on a new Royal Tunbridge Wells themed Monopoly set, following a public vote and social media campaign.
The public were invited to recommend organisations and locations to feature on various squares of the new game, and Compaid gained the largest number of votes for a charity, resulting in its position on a Community Chest square.
Compaid clients, volunteers and staff celebrated the game’s launch by trying out the new edition at the charity’s Training Centre in Paddock Wood. The game proved extremely popular with all those who played it and is destined to become a firm favourite.
A delighted Stephen Elsden, Chief Executive of Compaid, said: “We are thrilled to be recognised on the Royal Tunbridge Wells edition of Monopoly. While we work every day to improve the lives of disabled people, Compaid can sometimes be overlooked. This wonderful opportunity will help to put us firmly on not just the Monopoly map, but the general Royal Tunbridge Wells map too.”
Compaid, which has been serving the community for over 30 years, provides vital support to disabled and elderly people in and around Royal Tunbridge Wells and across Kent. It offers training in computer and digital skills, and essential transport services by its fleet of wheelchair accessible vehicles.
