Our Supporters

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

Phoenix Fitness (Chard)

The very lovely people over at Phoenix Fitness (Chard) have donated some of their memberships to a future WATCH raffle.

They are a very friendly and welcoming gym with a nice family atmosphere, that supports both new and experienced gym goers. They also offer free nutritional advice and support to local people and are happy to help!

So a big thank you to everyone over there for supporting us, and we look forward to seeing you in our sweats soon!

The late Mr Leslie Vernon Rainey

Chard WATCH would like to thank the family and friends who kindly made donations at the funeral of the late Leslie Vernon Rainey which totalled the sum of £5,000.

A big thumbs-up and thanks to Axminster Tools & Machinery for all of their support over the years! (Workshop or no.) 🙂

Mrs Julie Bingham

Kevin Townsend's sister, Mrs Julie Bingham has recently donated an incredible £1,000 to Chard WATCH CIC! I'm not sure I can even count that high, let alone express our gratitude in a few simple lines such as this. Thank you SO MUCH for your generosity, Julie!  🙂

Paula Moon

It seems a bit odd to type this when she's sitting right next to me, but a big public thanks to Paula Moon, WATCH's very own Administration Coordinator, for her recent donation of cups, costing her a total of £23.70! That really was very kind of you.

(I guess that means it's my turn to keep the office in biscuits then?!  :-D)

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.
