Devonshire Homes donates a further £4,400 to the Blood Bikes

19 February 2024

We’re pleased to announce that Devonshire Homes has donated a further £4,400 to our charities of the year.

The South West Blood Bikes and the Cornwall Blood Bikes have received £2,200 each, bringing the total amount raised so far for each charity up to £7,500!

Sales Manager Doug Wright was delighted to meet the South West Blood Bikes team at our Bovey Tracey site, Longston Cross, to present their cheque. Then last week, he made a second presentation to Cornwall Blood Bikes at Gwallon Keas, St Austell.

Devonshire Homes has supported and raised much-needed funds for these two fantastic local charities since 2022, through the sales of new build homes. For every open market house sold during the year, Devonshire Homes donates £25 to each charity. Devonshire Homes’ staff also show their support by hosting and taking part in a variety of fundraising events, including last August’s successful Charity Golf Day, which raised over £5,000!

The funds will help support the South West Blood Bikes and Cornwall Blood Bikes life-saving service. Volunteer bikers use their advanced motorcycle skills to provide an ‘out of hours’ service to NHS partners, transporting essential urgent supplies such as whole blood, pathology samples, medication, medical equipment, medical notes, and donor breast milk to NHS hospitals and hospices throughout Devon and Cornwall.
