On Wednesday 11th February, Gilbert Stephens LLP is hosting another Great Devon Breakfast in aid of local cancer charity, FORCE.

This popular event, which forms part of a county-wide fundraising campaign, will be held at the City Gate Hotel on the corner of St David’s Hill and Bartholomew Street East and starts at 8am. Breakfast costs £8 and includes a choice of Eggs Benedict or Scrambled Eggs with Smoked Salmon* with tea or coffee and a glass of orange juice.

Philip Luckham, CEO for Gilbert Stephens, comments: “FORCE is one of our nominated charities of the year for the second year running and this event marks the start of our fundraising efforts for 2015, and we hope to support them further with many other exciting events over the coming months. FORCE provides invaluable support to local people affected by cancer and we are proud to be supporting one of their biggest fundraising events.”

Naomi Cole, Community Fundraiser for FORCE Cancer Charity, comments: “We are delighted that Gilbert Stephens has chosen us as one of their chosen charities to support again this year. In addition to this event, we are looking for lots of people to host breakfast events for us in 2015 – all we ask is that you host a fundraising breakfast or brunch with anything from coffee and croissants to smoked salmon and Champers or the full English. It is at the discretion of the organiser to select the best kind of breakfast event for their friends or colleagues. The event has been so successful in the past as people only need to invite a few friends to your home or work and hey presto, the event is taking shape!”
