We are please to announce our new partnership with CITY Community Trust, Exeter’s leading health and well being charity, alongside Age UK Exeter, Children’s Hospice South West and Force Cancer we have been selected to receive official partner status following an open application process.
CITY Community Trust organise a number of high profile events in Exeter from Family Fun runs to a full distance marathon which is held in May. We will be able to offer free places at selected events for those looking to fundraise for their chosen charity as well as encourage their supporters along the way and on the day, they will help with water stations, supporters’ areas and huge congratulations at the finish.
Pete Ferlie, who is CCT’s health and well being officer says: “It’s great to have the extended support for our community, working with these great charities will mean our reach into the community can go even wider.”
Sarah Lakey, our senior community and events fundraiser: “Julian House is delighted to have been chosen as a charity partner by CCT. The major challenge for most good causes is raising funds. In our case we also have to raise awareness about the real issues which impact on homelessness which force men and women onto the streets. There is no doubt that once people are made aware then support follows.
Our new partnership also means that we will have charity spaces available for some of City Community Trusts brilliant running events throughout the year. Keep an eye on our events page for more information!
