Signing up for the Big Pledge

First published in News by

A COUNTYWIDE project asking people to make a difference to their own lives and their community is underway.

Wiltshire’s Big Pledge – part of Wiltshire Council’s Legacy for Wiltshire programme – will run for the next 12 weeks.

People can pledge as an individual, group, or community to do something that will improve their, or someone else’s, health and wellbeing.

Many community groups and area boards have already signed up and pledged what they will do. Their pledges include becoming dementia friendly towns and communities, opening the local bowls club to everyone to enjoy for a weekend for free, starting a choir or raising funds for a local charity.

Keith Humphries, the council’s Cabinet member for public health said: “Wiltshire’s Big Pledge is an opportunity for anyone looking to make a positive change for themselves or other people.

“This is a great project and I hope people will encourage and support each other to take part and have fun while doing it.”
