For the second year now, we have chosen 'Veterans with Dogs' based at Seale Hayne as our sponsored charity. Over two years cumulatively we have raised over £1000 with the total still rising.
We like to challenge ourselves in a bid to raise money, with our branch completing a row from Paignton to Torquay. Both last year and this year, we all took part in a fun but gruelling 5k inflatable run, which is in complete contrast to sitting at our desks! Throughout the year we continue to raise money by holding cake sales and a raffle.
We also support our local adopted school; Newton Abbot College. We supply much needed equipment for the foreign language department and also a cup for their awards night for the 'most improved in Key Stage 3'.
We have supplied a local playgroup with toys and we also arranged a visit from Father and Mother Christmas instore to hand out gifts to local children.
The branch as a whole loves to take part in these fund raising activities and we take great pleasure in seeing the difference our support makes to the community.
