It was a pleasure for trustees, patrons, volunteers and staff to go down to Kingskerswell to be presented with the cheque and to meet many of the people involved in the fundraising. We want to thank her so much for all of her hard work over the past year and to wish her well in having a well-earned break from fundraising!

Please come along and get creative ahead of our Reclaim The Night event and march.

Ben Bradshaw Meeting some of the New Staff Team.

On Saturday 3rd October, Patrons, Trustees, Volunteers and Staff members gathered together at the City Gate Hotel to bring together ideas about the organisation. The awayday included time to meet the expanded staff team and to acknowledge the successes of the past four years as well as looking to the future. Activities took place to start the process of strategic planning for the next three years and to develop a vision for the organisation. Most excitingly, the group agreed a new name for Devon Rape Crisis Service - to be unveiled in the next few months. Watch this space.....
