TESTIMONIALS

Jennifer Lee: "I really enjoyed the walk from Exeter to Exmouth and would most definitely want to go on the next charity walk" 

George Wannell: "Taking part within the events that are organised by the charity committee not only raises money for a great cause but it also creates a good atmosphere with an incentive at the end for yourself. I will be looking to take part in more going forward."

Jemma Berisford: "Glad to be involved with this years charity, I was involved with being a cake judge for the cake sale which happened in April. It was nice to see/eat many cakes and hopefully will be more the next time! Even if you are on a diet/don’t like cake, buy one and save it for a friend/family- that way you are still donating and raising money for such an amazing Charity." 

Rebecca Brodie: "I took part in the charity walk which was actually a lot of fun, the weather was so nice and we were laughing the whole way! We raised a large amount of money by using our social media and it was nice to mix with other departments"

Rikki Bennett: "I’ve really been enjoying the fundraising done for Devon Mind since being the very worthwhile nominated charity for this year, from embracing the pain of getting my legs waxed to taking a lengthy, but enjoyable stroll with fellow colleagues on a sunny trail from Exeter to Exmouth. Looking forward to what other various challenges and events will take place for what’s left of 2022 for us to smash our fundraising target by the end of the year!"
