Axminster businessman chips in with £50 towards a generator for youngsters’ carnival float

Award-winning tattoo artist Chris Williams is helping a group of Axminster youngsters to make an impression on the local carnival circuit.

Chris Williams, who runs the Tat Shack, in Lyme Street, has donated £50 to the Rainbow Playgroup towards a generator for their procession float.

The group needs to raise around £600 to buy the power unit and the latest donation takes their total to £168.

Other businesses that have chipped in so far include Bugler and GG Locke ltd and the playgroup raised a further £43 when it held a raffle for tickets to local attractions.

The youngsters are planning to take part in the carnival processions at Axminster, Colyton and Honiton later this year.

A spokeswoman said they were very grateful to all those who had already supported their fundraising for the generator.

Anyone would like to help or donate towards this please contact the playgroup by email rainbowpg@yahoo.com or telephone them on 07773714389.
