At a recent meeting of The Benevolent Masonic Lodge, which meets in Wells, members were delighted to present a cheque for £600 to the charity, TS5C.

TS5C supports young athletes in Somerset to reach a standard of excellence which will help them secure inclusion in a national squad or ultimately Team GB.

A big thank you to Waitrose who selected TS5C as one of their communuity matters charities for June 2018 and helped raise over £200

Dear Sir,

In last week’s paper you highlighted the success of Athletes from Millfield School, Street, Somerset and in particular you mentioned Cameron Kurle a young 19 year old swimmer who finished Upper Sixth at Millfield School this summer .

TS5C a small charity based in Glastonbury is pleased to have been able to play a small part in Camron’s success as we have in so many other young athletes in Somerset able and nonable. We set up the Sports and Healthy Living charity in 2007 in the lead up to the 2012 London Games, looking at the costings and level of commitment it would take for the county’s young athletes to compete at the highest level, we knew that additional support was going to be necessary. We provide grants for some really talented athletes but, realistically, we have had our sights set on the 2020 games so it is absolutely fantastic that Cameron has made it to this year’s games. Cameron was also joint winner of the TS5C Young Sorts Achiever of the year award 2016. We wish him and every member of Team GB every success at Rio.

Unlike other major sports charities TS5C is not funded by Local or National government but relies completely on the generosity of local businesses and individuals.

Yours faithfully

Alan Gloak
