Healthy Living Fund
we are building a longer term “endowment” fund to encourage wider participation in sport and to run the Healthy Living fund, which is designed to provide grant aid to groups of people of all ages across Somerset, to help them live a more healthy lifestyle.
Within Somerset there is up to 10 years difference in life expectancy, depending on where you live. Significant numbers of schoolchildren are overweight, and one in three households have an adult with a long-term debilitating illness.

These are just some of the issues this fund will address; reducing health inequities, and improving life chances and quality of life.

As a result of winning the National Schools’ Handball Title last year, Crispin’s Yr 11 Handball Team have just returned from competing against some of the best young handball teams in Europe at the prestigious Caban Cup in Poland.

Having become the only team from Somerset ever to win the National Schools title (2017), the 10-person team have been invited to attend the prestigious Caban Cup in Poland in January 2018 – the only English team ever to be invited.

TS5C is very pleased to be one of the sponsors supporting the tour and wishes the team the very best of luck.


TS5C is delighted to announce that it is supporting the work of Andy Leafe, the As  for Elmhurst Junior School, Hindhayes Infants School, (the feeder School for Elmhurst) and Brookside School in Street Somerset, in providing holiday time day trips to disadvantaged families.

A joint venture between Somerset County Council, sports charity TS5C, Strode College and Crispin School is hoping to help keep students and local residents fit and healthy.

Councillor and TS5C Chairman, Alan Gloak, officially opened the new £7,000 Trim Trail which has been built around Strode College’s sports ground. TS5C athletes Jessica Hudson and Charlie Cook were also on hand to put it through its paces.
