BASICS Devon are thrilled to announce that they have been successful at this critical time in receiving funds from The National Lottery Community Fund.

This much needed funding of £9,960 will help towards vital running costs for the lifesaving charity to ensure they can continue their response to Covid-19 and emerge from the crisis.

BASICS Devon specialist doctors are working hard and responding on the frontline, assisting the emergency services whilst under such extreme pressures with call outs increasing daily.

Their role has extended since the beginning of the pandemic and has adapted and will continue to do so to help their local Devon community and emergency colleagues get through this tough time.

Amie Bull Fundraising Manager for BASICS Devon said, ‘We want to thank the National Lottery Community Fund and their players for their incredible support. As we all know it is a very difficult time for everyone financially, our community fundraising has almost ceased and to receive this funding which helps us specifically with the running costs of the charity is so crucial. We must ensure our volunteers can continue to be there for the people in our community throughout the pandemic and beyond.’
