Released yesterday, Axel Scheffler has illustrated a digital book for primary school age children, free for anyone to read on screen or print out, about the Coronavirus and the measures taken to control it.
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.
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.
