Projects we’ve supported
We’re proud to be able to support so many great community projects. Here are just a handful of them.
Alphington Cricket Club
We provided a grant towards the installation of a super new 2-bay cricket practice facility with caged netting at Alphington Recreation Field
Alverdiscott Community Hall
We provided a grant towards improvements at Alverdiscott Community Hall. This included the installation of a new heating system, completion of roofing and insulation works, refurbishment of toilets, creation of storage facilities and redecoration of the hall.
Ashreigney Methodist Church
We contributed towards roof repairs at Ashreigney Methodist Church to preserve the fabric of the building. Works included the fitting of new treated timbers and a breathable membrane whilst slate roofing tiles were re-used as much as possible.

We provided a grant towards tarmacking the car parking area for the playing field and pavillion.
Atherington Parochial Church
We funded a disabled access ramp for the benefit of wheelchair users and a floor covering which enabled the short mat bowls club to resume their activities.
We provided a grant towards the Butterfly Conservations project to restore the open woodland habitat in Haldon Forest through a programme of scrub clearance and ride widening. Additionally removing some fallen trees, together with their stumps to recreate a total of 6.9 hectares of fabulous butterfly habitat.
Exeter Cricket Club
We helped the club to purchase five key new pieces of cricket ground and coaching equipment; an electronic scoreboard, a sight screen, a mobile net cage for grass wicket practice, a slip catching cradle and pitch covers.
Various grants awarded to this BMX track have rebuilt their start hill with a steeper gradient, installed a new clubhouse to provide a welcoming venue for visiting clubs and installed a well-equipped new kitchen and roofed veranda with comfortable seating for spectators.
Our grant allowed Exeter Phoenix to purchase a new digital projection and sound system. This was part of a larger scheme to enhance their facilities by developing greater capacity in several under served areas, such as auditorium seating, hospitality areas and a more creative work space.
Roborough Village Hall
We provided a grant towards the replacement of the village hall’s existing domestic standard kitchen units that had wooden doors and worktops, with up-to-date stainless steel units to meet current hygiene standards. It has also cladded walls with foodsafe hygienic wall cladding and replaced flooring, all to meet current standards.
