President Nick welcomes Wadge
WADGE GRZELAK [[ B.Sc.Sp.Sc., M.R.S.M., M.R.C. ]] is the “Medical Referral Consultant” at ‘Daventry Rehabilitation Trust’ (also better known as “Reach for Health”)
Wadge's story began by gaining a Bachelor’s degree in sports science at Liverpool University and then to the University of London to study the principles and practice of Medicine. In 1984 he opened his first fitness centre in Weedon called ‘Wadges’, this soon became a huge success, with over 1500 members at its peak.
During 1994 Wadge decided it was time for a change and opened a new centre now known as ‘Reach for Health’, which became a registered charity under Daventry Health and Rehabilitation Trust in 2010. The specific aim of Reach for Health is to target a different type of client; the person who doesn’t normally do exercise, the person who needs it most, people with serious illness and those with disabilities. Wadge became accredited by the NHS 2003 as a willing provider, and was invited into the membership of the Royal Society of Medicine 2009 and is now a Senior Member.
In his spare time Wadge also works for the Ambulance service as a First Responder going to 999 calls in his area, he also enjoys cycling, mountain climbing, playing the guitar and spending time with his family in Wales.
Wadge hopes that having established (DHRT) Reach for Health as a charity he will be able to leave a legacy that will go on helping people with health issues such as Strokes, Pulmonary Rehabilitation, Brain Injuries, Disabilities, etc., for many years to come.

Vision AidIan Clarke and his partner arrange another collection of 400 spectacles (in a period of 8 weeks) from local opticians in Daventry for the charity Vision Aid Overseas (VAO).
These are recycled and the money raised is used to fund the charity’s work in developing countries such as Zambia. This includes giving people those all-important eye tests and treatment by training up local optometrists.
Did you know that old, broken, unwanted frames, bent or scratched glasses can all be recycled so please drop your unwanted glasses into Specsavers at any time and help us support this fantastic charity.
