Our Supporters

Chard WATCH is reliant on donations. Our thanks go to the following benefactors:

The Secret Garden

There were two delicious breakfasts up for grabs in our Christmas raffle thanks to the kind generosity of everyone at The Secret Garden in Chard!

Stephen Beswetherick Opticians




Some very lucky raffle winner looked incredibly cool leaving our Christmas party last Thursday thanks to the pair of sunglasses that Stephen Beswetherick Opticians donated as a prize!  😎

Just Sew Sentimental

The fabulous people at Just Sew Sentimental were very kind and gave us a £5 gift card towards our Christmas party raffle!

We would like to thank everyone at Pure Hair and Beauty for giving WATCH a wonderful goody bag of make-up for the Christmas party raffle!

Costa Coffee





A heartfelt thank you to everybody at Costa Coffee in Chard for donating a prize consisting of two hot drinks (along with just as many cakes) towards our Christmas raffle!

Eleos Café

The next time you visit Eleos in Chard High Street, please thank them on our behalf for the £10 voucher they donated towards our Christmas party raffle!

Paul Fenton Estate Agents

Paul Fenton Estate Agents in Chard deserves an enthusiastic round of applause for the hamper they donated to us!

Tesco Chard




We would like to extend our thanks towards Tesco Chard for helping feed us all at our Christmas Party on the 7th December and for their ongoing support throughout the year!

Numatic International Ltd.




A massive thank you to Numatic International Ltd. in Chard for their donation towards our Christmas Party -- Including, but not limited to, an actual 'Henry' vacuum cleaner!

[For the record, this competition is still running and there are still a limited number of spaces left in the draw! Please ask at the front desk for more details.]

Tesco Chard Fundraising

The WATCH Project had a very productive couple of hours in the foyer of Chard Tesco yesterday (22nd November 2017). We raised a total of £104.12 – helped in no small part by the popularity of our mascot, and Jayne’s emotional well-being dog, Sam!

We owe a big thank you to Tesco for hosting us, and an enthusiastic pat on the back (loaded with gratitude) for Jayne, Sam, Sarah, Kevin, Richard, Lisa and Nicola for braving the elements and collecting there on our behalf.

I would name the public one-by-one for their generous donations as well, but that list could end up being very long indeed, so I’ll just thank you all with this blanket sentiment for now: Cheers, everybody! We really appreciate your support.
