How to Help


The Weston Light Orchestra will be performing for us on Saturday 14th October at 7.30pm at St Andrew’s Church in Cheddar (BS27 3RF). Tickets are just £10 and include refreshments during the interval, and can be bought on the door (cash only, please) or by card at our Community Café in Loxton (BS26 2XE). Other ticket venues will be posted here once they are confirmed. There is plenty of parking opposite the Church, and in the local Sainsbury’s car park for free. Please support us at this event.

We all know how crucial a defibrillator is in saving lives. We need to raise £1,599 – a small sum to save someone’s life. Thank you!

There are many, other ways in which you can help us achieve our goal and make our project a success. Thank you.

The Hub is now open as a cafe and, although we have a full-time manager and chef in charge, it would be wonderful (if you live locally) if you could volunteer some time whenever convenient for you. We will only know exactly what we require as time goes on, but please feel free to contact us now and leave your details and say briefly how and when you might be able to assist.

Thanks to generous grants from the National Grid and the National Lottery Community Fund, we have been able to purchase a minibus to transport local residents in to the Hub and take them to appointments or for other purposes.

Once we have built the activity centre, we will need volunteers to help run our anticipated activities. We already have quite a few local residents eager to do this, but it would be great to have as many as possible to make sure that we provide a superb service. Again, the activity centre will probably not be finished until well into 2024, but please contact us now with your details and how you might help in this area.

We will soon be embarking on a fund-raising drive to raise extra money for the construction of this activity centre. Please keep an eye out and support us with a donation.

Amazon Smile

If you buy things from Amazon, please do this through It will not cost you any more, and Amazon donate a % of the price of the article to charity. Please make sure that you include
“The Frankie Howerd OBE Trust” as the recipient of Amazon’s donation before you start shopping. Amazon have given around £4m to UK charities so far.

Finally, we are always most grateful to any donation that you feel you can give. This could be a card payment at our Community Café which is open between 9,30 and 4.30 every day.

However you support us, know that you are helping to build a much-needed Community Hub which will improve the life of hundreds of people in many ways and will be, as our President, Joanna Lumley, said, “A jewel at the heart of the Community”. Thank you so much.
