 CHARD NEWS: TKD Together gets support from Chard's Masonic Lodge

A COMMUNITY group which helps children through the teachings of Taekwondo martial arts has been supported by the Masonic Lodge of Chard.

TKD Together is based @TheUnit in Chard and is an organisation which is run by a group of volunteers and offers emotional and physical activities to young people of all ages and backgrounds through Taekwondo.

The group has recently received a donation of £150 from the Masonic Lodge of Chard to help toward resources and equipment for upcoming events.

The TKD Together group uses its skills in Taekwondo to help children in  Chard,  Ilminster and surrounding villages to build on self-esteem and knowledge to help with everyday issues.  It offers courses in anti-bullying, self-defence, pad fit-to help beat stress, school ready day.

Cheryl Herrick, part of the TKD Together group, said: “In a society where grooming, contextual, safeguarding, bullying and county lines regarding   drugs is present - TKD Together want to provide help, support and a safe place to learn techniques through the teachings of Taekwondo.”

The community group was set up by Nina Anderson, a 5th Dan Black Belt instructor, and is providing fantastic events for children to learn and enjoy.
Cheryl added: “We would like to thank Chard Masonic Lodge for the generous donation which will go towards new equipment for our TKD Together events.”
