The 2014 Legendary Christmas Charity Lunch is set to be bigger and more than lively than any that have gone before.

More than 600 guests will be able to enjoy the celebrated event which will feature entertainment from comedian Jethro and The Siren Songs choral duo.

Fourteen years ago the event was set up by Bruce Priday, raising funds initially for The Wooden Spoon, while he was Chairman of that charity in Devon and a trustee nationally.

Once retired from those roles he was asked if he would continue the official and original Exeter annual charity lunch, to benefit other organisations and continue the great work.

This year’s lunch will be held on 5 December at Sandy Park, Exeter and will feature great entertainment, amazing guests, a fully served hot meal and some incredible auction prizes.

The main charity focus will be the Exeter Foundation and for the first time the lunch will also provide support to the Atlas Foundation.

The event is seen by many in the city as the official start of the festive season and a great way to entertain clients, staff, friends and family.

This year the venue has grown, allowing organizers to offer more tables. A table of 10 costs £675 plus vat and can be secured with a £50 deposit, but organisers are also offering a additional 10% discount on the booking price to anyone who secures a part or full table by reading this article on the Devon Life website.

The Exeter Chiefs Foundation

The Exeter Chiefs Foundation was set up in 2010 by some of Exeter’s top names in business and sport that joined together to use their expertise to raise money for charities and to support key projects across the region.

The stated aim of The Exeter Chiefs Foundation is to provide the City of Exeter and its surrounding areas with a ‘Civic Trust’ to grasp responsibility for the advancement of Greater Exeter, and to pursue the vision of people, who live, work and run businesses in Exeter and the surrounding areas.

The Foundation is to be used as a medium to promote responsibility for the future prosperity of Exeter and a vehicle for collective civic pride.

The Atlas Foundation

The Atlas Foundation provides the financial support to worldwide charities that use the game of rugby as a facilitator to improve people’s lives. These rugby-based charities have an enduring problem funding their activities. As an independent charity funded through sponsorship, fundraising and donations allows such charities to focus on delivery rather than funding their activities.

By running rugby based events and by seeking out and securing tailored grant funding from large UK corporations and matching these funds to charitable organisations, the foundation will advance and promote the efficiency of rugby based charities around the world. Allowing them to apply their resources in a more effective manner towards carrying out their charitable purposes.
