Bridgwater based catering company Somerset Larder is helping to support those in most need in our community during the Coronavirus crisis. Its chefs have been preparing 250 meals to be sent to Fare Share South West, which helps vulnerable people through difficult times. It has previously supported the charity by donating surplus food, but has decided to step up with additional help in these challenging times.
Carnival organisers, artists and parade managers from across the country will gather for a two-day conference in March to discuss ways in which their events can become more sustainable and environmentally friendly.
James Smith from Bridgwater has set his sights on raising hundreds of pounds for Brainwave by taking on a special challenge later this year. Having successfully completed the Jurassic Coast Challenge – three marathons in three days – in 2019, James is now looking to embark on the Westcountry Ultra Flat 50 Miler this coming May.
Yet again, the Bridgwater community has demonstrated its kindness with contributions at the Christmas grotto, helping Angel Place Shopping Centre raise nearly £2000 for two charities this festive season.
