East Devon Business Initiative raised £800 for The Project

EDBI‘s charity project for 2016 was The Project in Axminster who support young people on the path to better mental health.

I’d been invited by Elaine from BuzzMM to visit EDBI breakfast networking event at Woodbury Park Hotel & Golf Club. They were a very welcoming bunch and invited myself and another guest to tell the group a little about ourselves to kick things off… so refreshing, the last time I attended a BNI networking breakfast the last thing they wanted to do was hear from me, especially after!

Mark Rhodes & I said our piece, then Debbie Humberstone from The Project shared the great work they are doing… with plans to open in Sidmouth…


The Project is committed to supporting and improving the emotional wellbeing and mental health of young people, age 12-24, as well as providing support to the parents and carers of young people experiencing mental distress.

Then it was time for our cooked breakfast… marvellous!

After breakfast the regulars shared what’s been going on in their worlds over the last week… no bells were rung and every story was told with a smile…

April Rose chaired proceedings and finished by drumming up interest in the Mayor of Exmouth’s Charity Ball on 4th March for Alzheimer’s Society.


Good crowd… I hope to be invited back 😉

Thank you
