To officially launch the Coastal Information Centre, our team decided they would show their dedication to a healthy lifestyle by travelling from different places in the not so local community and coming together at Teignmouth Hospital. When our sweaty teams returned they were greeted by a tempting cream tea and the head shaving of Werner Coetzee, Social Care Manager, and Richard Baker, Community Services Manager.
When the last of our teams streamed in, the Mayors of Teignmouth and Dawlish cut the ribbon to pronounce the centre open. The hub was buzzing with life and was packed with stands from local businesses and charities giving out information on how they help our community.
We run this hub alongside our normal services meaning we can help support more people in our community; it is designed to be an open space for anyone to come and gain more information on any services for them or a loved one.
Our teams managed to walk, run, cycle and kayak roughly 50 km (31 miles) between them, all this raised over £600, but most importantly raised much needed support and awareness.
Thank you to everyone who took part, helped out on the day, donated raffle prizes, bought raffle tickets, ran a stall on the day. It was a really fantastic event with an impressive turnout. Thank you!
