£1,000 raised for Children in Need

The Burrington Estates New Homes team joined forces with Exeter based military clothing company ‘Brigantes’ and took part in ‘The Big Bike and Row’ at their headquarters in Exeter. The team rowed and cycled on static equipment from 9:30am until 4pm, aiming to travel the distance from Exeter to Bristol, but exceeded their target and rowed an impressive 110.5 miles – covering the distance from Exeter to Gloucester.

With their laces tied and sportswear on, the team were ready to go, relaying in 15 minute stints throughout the day.

The Burrington team also held a raffle at their sales offices across Devon and Cornwall. At Trispen Meadows, EXIII Topsham, The Quarters and Dean Clarke House – home to the Burrington Estates New Homes headquarters. A massive £1,000 was raised for Children In Need, contributing to the incredible £50 million+ that was raised on the evening of Children In Need – Friday 16th November.

Special thanks go to the suppliers for donating raffle prizes and to the general public, staff and family members for purchasing tickets.

Team BE gets knocked out at ‘It’s a Knockout’

This month, the Burrington Estates New Homes team took a trip across the border to take part in the annual ‘It’s a Knockout’ event in Cornwall. Nine members of the new homes team and friends were ready to compete against 11 other teams in the foam-tastic, inflatable, family fun day raising money for Cornwall Hospice Care.

The day saw local residents and holiday makers enjoy the entertainment, with a dog show, horse riding event, BBQ, live band and circus games as well as the mighty ‘It’s a Knockout’ final game.

12 teams in total took part in the 7 different obstacle stations which consisted of tunnel diving, climbing, ball throwing, hoop flying, group sack racing, space hopping, dancing and more.

It was a great event that was held at the St Erme Cricket Club in Trispen organised by The Trispen Funday committee, just a stone’s throw away from Burrington Estates new homes development; Trispen Meadows. Over £600 was raised for Cornwall Hospice Care with donations still being collected. We would like to thank the committee for inviting us and congratulate the well-deserved, winning team – Cornwall Glass.

Well done everyone.
