Charities

[vc_row][vc_column width=”1/1″][vc_column_text]The two chosen charities Scrumpstock will be supporting this year are the Snooky Trust and the RNLI.

The Snooky Trust is a Dawlish based charity set up to help the often forgotten age group of 18-40 year olds suffering from physical illnesses. Their support is provided in a variety of ways such as helping with rent and utility arrears, buying much needed equipment and aids and even funding breaks away from home so they can get away the stresses and strains of their illnesses.

The RNLI are welcoming their president, the Duke of Kent on 19 March and naming their new Shannon boat in an official ceremony on 9 May 2015. RNLI Exmouth will be bringing  games stalls to Scrumpstock including guess the weight of the welly, hoopla with wellies and of course the much-loved coconut shy as well as other village fete staples.

Food stalls will be open throughout the event, including good local fare and festival favourites. More info will be given as it becomes available to whet your appetite.

About The Snooky Trust

Chris Snook was a popular and much loved resident in the beautiful seaside town of Dawlish, in Devon.

Chris Snook sadly passed away at the tender and devastating age of 27.
Seven years after Chris’s passing, Chris’s sister Caz decided to set up a charity in his memory, and try to help as many young adults in the area as she could, Caz also wanted to keep Chris’s memory alive. Caz decided to call the charity The Snooky Trust Charity.

In September 2007 the charity very nervously opened the doors of The Snooky Trust Charity for the first time. Caz didn’t even know how she was going to be able to afford the next month’s rent but was determined that the forgotten age of “18-40” year olds should be helped in any way she could help them. Thankfully Dawlish responded well to the charity opening as The Snooky Trust Charity shop is the only charity shop in Dawlish that supports and helps the young adults in the town.

It wasn’t long before The Snooky Trust Charity could start helping the young adults of the town and beyond, who were suffering from a physical illnesses.

All of the information and work that The Snooky Trust Charity does is kept 100% confidential by The Snooky Trust Charity. Many young adults do talk openly about the help that they have received from the charity, but also there are some that choose not too. The Snooky Trust Charity believes and embraces the young adults choice to 100% confidentiality.

The beauty of The Snooky Trust Charity is that is can help young adults in a variety of ways, by helping with rent and utility arrears, buying equipment to help aid an illness. Or sending young adults away for a break, a breath of fresh air away from all of the stresses and strains of their illness.
