Housebuilder supports Exeter Foundation with gala dinner
A fundraising evening organised by Barratt Homes and David Wilson Homes has raised £6,500 for The Exeter Foundation charity, with money raised going towards helping a range of charities and groups across the region.
Staff from the five star housebuilder together with suppliers and sub-contractors enjoyed a black tie evening at Sandy Park, the home of the Exeter Chiefs which included a presentation by Exeter Foundation chairman Tony Rowe and included a raffle, auction and fundraising casino.
Barratt Homes and David Wilson Homes managing director Paul Moran said the fundraiser was part of the housebuilders’ long-term support of the foundation which provides the city with a Civic Trust and helps a wide range of charities and services to support local people.
“We are delighted that The Exeter Foundation is our chosen charity for the second year running and our staff have been great at coming up with great ways to raise money,” said Paul.
“Some staff have been skydiving, we have sold show home furniture and now this black tie dinner which was extremely well organised by the staff and supported by our suppliers and partners.”
Tony Rowe, chairman of the Exeter Foundation said: “I’d like to thank Barratt Homes and David Wilson Homes for adopting our charity and pledging to raise funds, 100 per cent of which, will go to worthy causes. The evening was a great success.”
