Things looking up for charity

THINGS are looking up for a struggling Weston charity thanks to an anonymous donation and potential grants.
The Mercury revealed earlier this year how Chaplaincy About Town (ChAT) had to wave goodbye to its lead chaplain, Reverend Andy Sewell, because of a lack of funding.
But trustee and associate chaplain, Rev Gill Putnam, vowed that the charity would continue to help those in difficulty across town and things have since picked up financially.
Despite the fact that volunteers have increased their hours to cover Rev Sewell’s absence, an anonymous donation of £500 has been received and applications have been made to charitable organisations.
