Supporting Charities at Christmas 

Instead of sending Christmas cards, we will be supporting charities in our various office locations where our teams will be contributing to and assisting in a range of initiatives in support of our local communities.

In previous years, this has included food bank collections and soup kitchens as well as purchasing much needed supplies for the homeless.

Below are some of these initiatives:

Exeter office

The Exeter office are supporting St Petrock's - a local homelessness charity that run a soup kitchen out of Exeter Cathedral and SAFE (Stop Abuse for Everyone) - a local charity that supports victims of domestic violence.
