COVID-19 Update - 14/03/2020 (12:00)

At The Woodworks Project, we have been closely monitoring the rapidly developing situation and concerns around COVID-19. There remains much uncertainty about COVID-19 and the implications that it may have on businesses and communities. 

Our priority is the safety and wellbeing of our workshop clients, as well as our staff and volunteers. Whilst we will always be supportive of community events and respect the difficult decisions that the Bath Half organisers have had to face, The Woodworks Project has decided that it will not be officially attending the Bath Half race tomorrow. 

It is with a heavy heart that this decision has been made, as we recognise that our runners and supporters have put in a lot of effort into training and fundraising. 

We’d like to take a moment to thank the students and instructors at the Professional Unification of Martial Arts for their support in helping to organise and fundraise our joint efforts to participate in the Bath Half Marathon. 

If you have any questions, please contact Sami at

Thank you for your continued support and understanding.

COVID-19 Update - 12/03/2020 (20:00)

We have been closely monitoring the on-going developments in the COVID-19 virus situation, and particularly the impact on whether the Bath Half Marathon will go ahead this Sunday or not. We  have now received confirmation from the event organisers that Sunday’s race will go ahead, following their careful consideration of advice given by relevant government organisations. 

Whilst the organisers have confirmed that the race will go ahead, we fully appreciate that these are worrying times for all and that the decision to run on Sunday is a very personal decision, and needs to be weighed carefully for your own circumstances. In-line with the advice from the Bath Half organisers, we fully understand if you choose not to attend the race - our priority is that our runners and their families feel safe and comfortable. We will not be passing on any of the registration fees incurred. 

We will still have a presence in the Runners Village (in the Bath Pavilion) to support you, if you feel able to along on Sunday.

Thank you for your continued support. 

Bath Half 2020

15th March 2020

We are delighted to be taking part in the Bath Half Marathon, for the first time EVER!

By joining our team, you will help us to support everyone in Bath & North East Somerset who is experiencing a challenge in their lives, whether from poor mental health, substance addiction recovery and physical or learning disabilities, amongst others. The Woodworks Project aims to empower people through engagement in meaningful activities such as woodworking and upholstery, to help maintain wellbeing and promote team working.  

We are very fortunate that Bath Taekwon-Do is partnering with us to enter a team of runners into the 2020 Bath Half! Both of our organisations share many of the same values. Bath Taekwondo is a local Taekwondo school, which is part of the Professional Unification of Martial Arts (P.U.M.A.) organisation, one of the most respected and forward thinking martial arts organisations in the UK. The school teaches both adults and children, in a fun and friendly atmosphere for the whole family! For more information about Bath Taekwondo, please see their website:

We are extremely grateful and want to give a massive thank you to the members of Bath Taekwon-Do who are volunteering to run the Bath Half alongside The Woodworks Project and are supporting the work that we do!

In 2020, we have set ourselves the goal of raising £3,750, which will fund one person’s place in our workshop for a whole year! 

How can I run for The Woodworks Project in 2020? 

For the first time ever, we have 10 charity places for the Bath Half. Registration is free, but we ask individual runners to pledge to raise a minimum of £175 in sponsorship.
