TS5C is a third party charity established in 2007 to grant aid to young aspiring athletes in Somerset to enable them to compete at the highest level.

Its remit has since widened to support healthy living projects and a Wheelchair Basketball initiative in Somerset.


TS5C relies completely on the generosity of local businesses and individuals to operate. 

Alan Gloak: "Last Saturday was Glastonbury Frost Fair day and TS5C a stall there selling children’s books, Wow has it grown from when I started it in 2002/3. We had about 12 stalls to start now its about 200/250, loads of people and great fun, but, a fair this size that takes over the town takes a lot of planning and hard work so WELL DONE fair people!

A big thank you to Mr & Mrs Cook, Mr Hudson, my nephew Paul and his wife Angie who put up and arranged our stall. Also my neice Kim who not only helped out all day but cooked us supper. A big thank you again to all of you. It was jolly cold but stuck it out untll 6pm we made £231.00 - it all helps.

Our Goal

TS5C's aim is to make a difference to people's lives in Somerset - be it in providing funding for trim trails, disability swimming events, up and coming athletes or community projects like wheelchair basketball.

We exist solely on donations from individuals, businesses and small foundations. If you would like to support our efforts, please contact us directly.
"The success of TS5C is down to the dedication of people determined to make it work. We rely entirely on voluntary contributions. It’s a challenge but not insurmountable, however, we need the support of small local companies and individuals, wanting to make a difference."
