A Big Thank You from Brixham Does Care

A big “Thank You” is due to Liberty Cocktail Bar (Brixham Quay), who hosted a Christmas Party with a FREE Buffet for 60 Brixham Does Care volunteers, staff and their partners.   The food was delicious, the staff really friendly and the great atmosphere persuaded some of the guests to try a cocktail or two!  

JR’s (also on The Quay), hosted a FREE Sunday Lunch for 16 BDC volunteers, thanks to the generosity of local businesses Bookers (Paignton), Regency Wines (Exeter), The Co-Op, Cards 2 Confetti and Ella’s Chocolate Emporium (all Fore Street, Brixham), The Bay Coffee Shop, Inspirations of Brixham, and, of course, JR’s (all situated on The Quay).  

The charity is indebted to numerous businesses and other organisations and individuals for their continued support.  For example, Stockman & Loram print the monthly Newsletter;   Simply Fish provide FREE Fish & Chips every Monday;   The Co-Op run their Local Causes Scheme that allows customers to nominate Brixham Does Care to receive money.   Brixham Town Council operates their Council Tax Precept scheme, giving financial support; 

Thank you, one and all, and a Happy New Year!
