Our Projects

Members and volunteers with the W.A.T.CH Project work on a variety of projects to raise funds for the project and to help achieve the project’s goal; bringing the community together and helping people to achieve their potential. These are some of those projects.

The Art Table


At the Thursday Project volunteer Anne Townsend has a good following of members at the art table each week.


The Golsoncott Foundation – New Art Project

Members of Chard WATCH Project are now working in-house with each other to produce a new piece of art. Funded by the The Golsoncott Foundation they are going to produce a rural picture made completely out of buttons! We would like to express our gratitude to the The Golsoncott Foundation for the funding of this small art project which is helping our members to enhance their skills. Please follow the website for regular updates.


No White Peaks

To raise funds for the W.A.T.CH Project we are selling a charity release, on CD, of the late Peter Cushing reading Peter Kayne’s poem No White Peaks, with music by Adam Wakeman. More information here.


Turn Towards The Light

The W.A.T.CH Project members and volunteers worked together to create a book called Turn Towards The Light, which tells the stories of members’ journeys through mental health in their own words. More information on the book and how to order it can be found here.
