Charity & Community

Charity and community support is a key part of Chelverton’s ethos. Over the past few years, we have supported many initiatives either through direct donations or through encouraging staff to raise funds and Chelverton matching those fundraises.

Voices for Life

Voices for Life is an award-winning Bath-based charity committed to encouraging the voices of all children through high quality music, coaching and wellbeing projects.  We believe in a word where children make music to promote wellbeing and build sustainable communities. 

Voices for Life is extremely grateful for the support received from Chelverton Asset Management which helps us to continue inspiring children to be happy and confident through music.

Walk with Scott Foundation

The Walk with Scott Foundation was formed by Scott Glynn in 2013 prior to his untimely passing. A good friend of mine has helped keep the charity going subsequently. The charity raises money which all goes back into local communities in East Lothian, just outside Edinburgh.  The ethos is to promote health and wellbeing in the area. Requests from as little as a few hundred pounds can make a very direct impact on local peoples lives. This is what appeals so much, a small bequeath from the charity can have such an impact on people/causes many of whom slip through the net of mainstream funding sources. Having also supported another fundraiser by the Foundation, the ‘Big Boys Breakfast’ at the local legion club, I decided to ‘step up’ and raise funds via the annual 26 mile charity walk.”

My Name’5 Doddie Foundation

Doddie Weir, the much-loved former Scotland and British and Irish Lions rugby player, was struck with MND in 2016. Life expectancy following any diagnosis of this progressive disease is typically 2-5 years, as the brain and nervous system become irreparably impaired. Doddie chose to spend his last years raising awareness and establishing the ‘My Names’5 Doddie Foundation’ as a fundraising vehicle for research.

In March Chelverton have chosen to support a relay team of 8 friends participating in the ‘All Roads Lead to Rome’ cycle challenge in aid of Doddie’s Foundation. Davy Zyn, a keen cyclist and team member, was sadly diagnosed with MND at the age of 30. Davy is of the view that MND is not incurable, just under-researched. He believes developments in AI and other research capabilities offer hope if research funds can be made available. Hence he and his friends, including my son, plan to leave Edinburgh’s Murrayfield rugby stadium and head for Rome’s Stadio Olimpico. They will travel over 2,700 km in 7 days, cycling for 24 hours each day and climbing over 27,000 m in altitude. Davy will join them for the final leg of the relay, riding into Rome.

The team have expressed enormous gratitude for Chelverton’s support and Chelverton wish them, and all the other riders who are planning to undertake this challenge during 2024, every success in raising funds for this worthy cause.
