A BRAVE member of a Chard group raised funds through a sponsored chest and back wax.

Ian Newland went to Pure Beauty to be waxed in a bid to raise £50 in sponsorship.

Chard WATCH (Working All Together in Chard) Project would like to thank Becky at Pure Beauty for supporting the event and the sponsors.

The project provides support for people in Chard and surrounding areas and meets every Thursday at the Young People’s Centre, Essex Close, between 11am and 4pm.

It is seeking volunteers with life experience to work with members in running it. They could be retired with time on their hands and life skills that would help raise the self-esteem of everyone who attends.

Anyone who would like to find out more should call Julie Matthews on 01460-261264, 07506-238540 or e-mail at chardwatchproject.org.uk
