3. Share a games evening with your neighbours

4. Open your garden

5. Organise a quiz night

6. Music and mulled wine evening

8. Film night

Use your talents:

16. Teach your skill – music /dance/sketching lessons for a donation to CHAT

Challenge Yourself:

17. Join the fabulous four who have already raised money by Skydiving at Dunkeswell

21. Sponsored silence

22. Silent auction to let people choose what you wear for a day

23. Go without make-up for a week

Talisker Whisky Atlantic Rowing  Challenge 2022

Imagine the horror of your two sets of twin boys announcing over dinner that they are going to row 3,000 miles across the Atlantic!

Euan, Jack, Arthur and Hamish Friend took delivery of their boat in May 2021 and have since been training from their base in Exmouth. They are going to raise money for three different charities one of which is CHAT and for this we are really excited. They will be setting off on this incredible adventure in 2022 and will be setting a world record for being the first four brothers to achieve this feat of endurance.


After the initial shock, the boys’ parents Simon and Judy are so proud of what their sons are attempting and are hoping that everyone will give them a huge amount of support and encouragement.
