We worked very hard over the summer months of 2016 to establish the charity formally and complete the processes required by the Charity Commission. We were very conscious that until we received their approval we shouldn’t begin to allocate the funds that we had generated.

Our formal recognition was received on 10th October 2016, and shortly after we made our first allocation of funds. Listed below are the projects that have received funding so far.


Allocation 31 – Teenage Mental Health – part complete £320 spent to date, still in progress

Mental health affects everything. It affects our nature and how we interact with the world and ourselves. Without good mental health, we are susceptible to not knowing our full worth and struggling with things that are beyond our control. When we ignore mental health, we ignore ourselves. Good mental health helps us feel sad if we want to [...]


Allocation 30 – Defibrillator – King George Playing Fields Tarvin £1295

At the July Parish Council meeting it was reported that on Sunday 30th June someone had collapsed and died of a heart attack at Tarvin Tennis Club.

Allocation 29 – Tarvin Blues Under 11s kit £250

The Tarvin Blues Under 11s were looking for a co-"sponsor" for their new kit and the trustees of The George Heath Foundation were happy to help.

Tarvin man, Dan Edwards, a multiple SuperKart Grand Prix winner was seriously injured racing his super kart in 2017 at Ashbourne in Derbyshire. Dan, a former British number one, suffered damage to both his legs as well as a broken wrist. Dan was suffering from compartment syndrome in his right leg (when there’s a large amount of pressure on [...]

One of our trustees, Chloe, has been teaching her class at Childer Thornton Primary School about refugees and homelessness and the children wanted to know all about the "Care Bags" that we provided to Chester Aid to the Homeless (CATH) last year. Robbie and Gaynor visited the school in January and met the class and, since then, Year [...]


Allocation 26 – Barrow Playing Field / Pavilion – Leverage Funding £1,000

A project is ongoing in our neighbouring village to Regenerate the Pavilion on Barrow Playing Field and include a Community Shop.

George loved Motor Racing....and he loved his time at Tarporley High School (mostly!) a project that puts the two in the same sentence is definitely going to have the backing of The George Heath Foundation.
