Joint Crowdfunder For The Prout Bridge Project & Broadwindsor PTA

Jo and Dani have made the mad decision to take on the challenge of the Bantham Swoosh. 6km (3.75 miles) down a river in Devon on 16th July 2022.

Now, they love swimming outside and you‘ll often find them on a local beach however, 6km of swimming is an awful long way in what will still be pretty cold water. Before signing up to this swim the furthest neither of them had swum outside is about 1km so they are having to work hard for 6km to be achievable. They will whole heartedly appreciate any money you can give to help get them over the finish line. All money raised on their Crowdfunding page will be split between The Prout Bridge Project in Beaminster and Broadwindsor School PTA.

Broadwindsor PTA are currently raising money to go towards new outdoor play equipment that will be used by all of the children throughout the school.

The Prout Bridge Project is a small local charity that makes a big difference by delivering youth work, community activities and mental health support to people in West Dorset. Money raised will go towards supporting young people’s mental health and well-being in one-to-one and group sessions. The need for this is huge and they currently have a waiting list. They are fundraising to grow their team so they can help more young people who are struggling.

Please support both these worthy organisations & donate HERE. Thank you!


Clothes Banks By School Empty & Ready For More

The two big clothes banks located just outside the school gates have just been emptied after being full for over a week.  The P.T.A. did receive lots of messages and thanks to everyone for their patience.
Village resident, Hazel Catton stated that they usually are emptied every two weeks and as she lives around the corner, usually notices if they should fill up before then.  Any queries, please message her through Facebook.
Deposits can be made at any time.  All of the clothes donated raise vital funds to help support our village school.

Thank you for all donations so far – please keep them coming!
