As a small business, we firmly believe that a simple act of kindness can change our local community for the better - one step at a time.
That is why we have chosen to support a charity partner this season, to try and help improve the lives of others. We have chosen to partner with the YMCA store in Bridport, to target helping young people in the community.
About the YMCA, England & Wales
"YMCA believes in fairness and opportunity.
There are essential building blocks for a full and rewarding life: a safe home; acceptance; guidance; friendship; physical and mental health; academic support; employment skills; and access to real opportunities.
Many young people have never known these things; other people have lost one or more as they grew up, but we all need them. All of us.
At YMCA, we provide these critical foundations for a fresh, strong start for young people and a better quality of life in the community."
How does it work?
The process for donations is very simple.
If you are planning a visit to us and wish to make a booking, you can ask us to donate £1.00 of the cost of that ticket to the YMCA (Bridport store) by simply entering 'YMCA' in the "Where did you hear about us?" box.
Once you have completed your session, your donation request will be automatically flagged in our system and we will arrange for the donation to be gifted.

There are so many good and worthy causes out there, being ran by armies of extraordinary people, that unfortunately we cannot support them all.

We have listed a selection of our larger 2023 sponsorship events and their stories.
Jurassic Fields will take place on Friday 14th, Saturday 15th and Sunday 16th July in Bridport, Dorset. Set up as a not-for-profit organisation, they support the tremendous musical talent that exists in Bridport and West Dorset.
The festival, now in its eighth year, is well established and proving to be one of the best in the south of England. With over 4000 visitors, including people as far afield as Ireland and Scotland, a large population make a holiday of their visit. With great support coming from the Bristol and south coast areas, this is something that can only have a positive effect on the community and the local businesses in the area.
Short term, Jurassic Fields Festival aim to provide a community event celebrating music.
The long term objective is to ultimately provide the capital to set up a local, professional music studio and rehearsal hall run by volunteers, allowing the sourcing and provision of grants to enable local musicians to further their careers.
There is also hope that the festival will act as a model for other communities in supporting their local musical talent.
We are pleased to say that we have already fulfilled our short term goals by the establishment of the festival which is providing a community event celebrating music. This has given a tremendous number of local musicians the opportunity to perform in a professional setup, including youth music, with an array of teenage bands and solo teenage artists given the chance to display their talents.
Having established ourselves with the continued support of our sponsors, we are looking to push on and achieve our long term goal which we believe will not only enhance the community socially, but also economically.

The upcoming beer festival is set to feature a wide selection of beers and ciders, from quirky and exotic options to local favourites. But if beer and cider are not your preference, fear not! There are still plenty of options to choose from, such as expertly crafted cocktails, refreshing fruity Pimms, or quality wines.
As always there will be live music, starting on the Friday evening with what promises to be an incredible performance by masters of the stage, Stylliano, and then onto Saturday where it will be open-mic during the day, followed by performances in the evening from crowd favourite Shelby’s Elbow and rock covers super group Double D Junior.
