Exeter CITY Community Trust, Exeter’s leading health and wellbeing charity, has been awarded for its business contribution to sport in the community at the Devon Sports Awards.
In a tough group of nominations against Plymouth Argyle Community Trust and Sea Sports South West, the charity was given the award for their continued impact on the local community.
Having recently won an Exeter Living Award in the health and wellbeing category, this award further highlights the charity’s hard work and dedication to benefit people of all ages within the community.
As a charity we have 45,000 individuals take part in our programmes each year. We have extended our delivery to an extent that 48% of our programmes are not football related.
Exeter CITY Community Trust's health and wellbeing office Peter Ferlie was on hand to receive the award on the night
Our work in the community includes social inclusion, women and girl’s football, education, youth engagement, sports participations, running events and health and wellbeing.
Exeter CITY Community Trust’s Business Development Manager, Stacey Hedge, believes the award further signals the hard work that the charity puts into the community.
She explained: “This award, added to our Exeter Living Award, highlights the fact that we are having a tremendous impact on the local community.
“Here at CCT we’re proud to offer such a diverse range of courses and sessions to ensure that we reach out to as many members of the community as possible to enable people to live healthy lives.
“We’re always looking to improve and develop and collectively we’re excited about the future as we aim to continue our efforts in the local area.”
