“We’re very grateful to the Exeter Foundation for their continued support of Vranch House. Their donation of £25,000 was significant in helping us achieve our 50% funding target for the £500,000 redevelopment cost of our hydrotherapy pool. The pool is used by approximately 1,000 users a year. It helps the pupils and patients of Vranch House, who have a range of physical disabilities, as well as adults with learning disabilities and other adults recovering from strokes and similar medical conditions who live in the wider Exeter community” Andrew Barge, Vranch House 2017
"The East Budleigh Village Green committee would like to thank the Foundation for giving such a generous donation to our project. Not only was it over and abovewhat we expected it also kick started all our fundraising and created a real buzz in our village. Thank you so much." Mike Pulley, EBVG Committee
"FORCE Cancer Charity has been delighted to be a designated charity of The Exeter Foundation since it was set up. We have greatly-appreciated the opportunity that this has given us not only to raise awareness of our charity and of the work that we do, but also to fundraise.
FORCE has so far received nearly £60,000 from The Exeter Foundation and as all of our work continues to rely entirely on voluntary donations, this money is vital. A large proportion of this money has helped to fund two vehicles: our outreach van has already been well-used, taking out many of our services to Okehampton and Tiverton one day a week respectively; and our newest vehicle will be taking out the drugs as well as FORCE-funded nurses, so that chemotherapy can be administered in Tiverton.
Sincere thanks to the Trustees of The Exeter Foundation for their continued support of FORCE Cancer Charity, as well as to everyone who supports fundraising events for the charity – which in turn benefits FORCE and many other local charities." Naomi Cole, FORCE
