Following an extensive refurbishment earlier this year, Jurys Inn Exeter took the opportunity to give back and donated used bedroom furniture to the British Heart Foundation. The furniture donations have raised an incredible £10,320 to help support the charity and fund vital heart research. 

The stylish makeover began earlier this year to celebrate the hotel’s tenth anniversary, and visitors can now see the fantastic results when staying in one of the hotels’ 170 rooms. All the bedrooms have now been refurbished using radiant pastel tones, and feature the DREAM bed by Jurys Inn, large work desk with ergonomic chair, flat screen TV, spacious bathroom with complimentary toiletries and more.

The work doesn’t stop there, to complete the look, Jurys Inn Exeter has unveiled plans to transform all of the communal areas, including the bar, restaurant and lobby which will be carried out towards the end of the year. 

Lauren Vine, General Manager of Jurys Inn Exeter, commented: “At Jurys Inn Exeter, we’re really proud to have raised such a significant amount of money for The British Heart Foundation through furniture donations. Our tenth anniversary is a huge landmark for us and we’re honoured to have celebrated such a milestone by helping give something back to such a worthy cause.” 

Dan Wood, Area Manager of The British Heart Foundation said “At the BHF we always welcome partnerships such as this, which not only help save good quality items from going to landfill, but also help us raise money to help the 7.4 million people in the UK living with heart and circulatory diseases. Thank you to everyone at Jurys Inn Exeter.’
