Hi guys, What a terrific plan. Chat is a most worthy cause and a true LIGHTHOUSE for the people of Tiverton and the surrounding area's. I am a recipient of CHAT who have played a major role in turning my life around. I was in what i thought a hopeless position but CHAT showed me how to do it and get it right. I would like to offer you as much stock as you need to fill those tables on your Pannier Market stall day. Please get in touch via facebook and lets see what can be done to make your time and energy pay off. Phil M.

This is why decent housing is so vital.
