Letters of thanks

A Big “Thank you” to Brixham Rotary Club.

They have very kindly given Eden Park Primary and Nursery School a generous donation, to help us with our home learning during this Pandemic. With the money we have received we have bought some flip charts, stationery, equipment and whiteboards to help the teachers and the children.

On behalf of all the children and the Teachers. Thank you.

Dear All at The Rotary Club of Brixham,

Thank you so very much for welcoming Dr Alex Rowe to your meeting on Tuesday 12th January. Alex really enjoyed seeing you all and we hope you found it insightful to get to know our cause at BASICS Devon.

We wanted to get in touch to firstly say thank you for engaging with our charity and also to see if there is anything further, we can help you with as we want to continue to grow and connect with our communities.

As you now know, BASICS Devon doctors are volunteering in a busy and difficult time and during this current Covid-19 pandemic they are having to adapt their skills to cope with an entirely new set of circumstances. They continue to share their skills with other doctors and frontline ambulance staff, outside the BASICS membership, during the pandemic and beyond. They can and want to assist the NHS emergency services when they are under such extreme pressures. Individuals and fellow medical professionals feel supported knowing they have a local specialist BASICS Devon doctor when they need them, by their side.

It is truly crucial that we help respond in this crisis, but emerge able to continue responding to routine calls. Our doctors aim to reach isolated and vulnerable communities fast, since the 1st January they have attended 26 emergency callouts, being first on the scene at 35% of them.

As you know we receive no government funding and rely solely on donations. We are only a small charity but are working on strategies to raise awareness of our work in order to continue to provide the emergency, lifesaving care in our local community, and want to work with others across our beautiful county.

At this time, we appreciate that many individuals, groups and businesses are suffering financially. We also realise that much of our funding comes from people who are self-employed and who have faced real hardship. We are sadly no longer holding face to face or events fundraising, but continue our fundraising activities online, but are very much reliant on trusts and foundations.
If there is anything that you and your members would like to do together in the future, please do get in touch.

I hope that meeting Dr Alex Rowe has made you feel confident that we are doing all we can to help the people of Devon at this tough time and to give you a clear insight into our cause.

Our charity office operates remotely and continue to be available should you need us You can contact me directly by email or telephone 01752 936299. You can also visit our website at for further information, where you can also subscribe to our newsletter.

We hope you and your loved ones stay safe and well and we truly appreciate your support.

Kindest regards

Amie Bull

A wonderful card from Mhairi at the Childrens Hospice South West:

Mhairi talked to the club via Zoom before Christmas.

This is particularly nice as it is a card drawn by a child  and she already had acknowledged our donation with a personal email and also with a formal letter from the Hospice.
