Lifestyle Group’s management team received a formal thank from Exeter‘s Lord Mayor in recognition of a series of fund raising events the group have held to support his chosen charity.
One of the highlights was a recent sportsman’s dinner with ex-internationalfootballer now TV pundit Paul Merson as guest speaker which raised £300 for the Mayor’s chosen charity, the Wonford and St Paul’s Youth and Community Project in Burnthouse Lane. Inclusive of this event, the group has raised over £1000 for the charity so far.
To show his appreciation, the Lord Mayor Cllr Marcel Choules invited Lifestyle Group’s senior management team to visit the Guildhall where they were given an extensive tour of the building and its artefacts, as well as taking tea in the Mayor’s parlour.
Lifestyle whose eateries include Gissons, Bombay Bills and Tiger Bills, pledged to raise money for the charity throughout Cllr Choules’ year of office. The Mayor even joined in the fun by doing a fundraising stint as a doorman outside Bombay Bills, dressed in Indian Raj costume, on one of their popular curry and comedy nights.
‘We have been delighted to support the Lord Mayor’s charity,’ said Lifestyle’s managing director James Eyre, “and all our staff really threw themselves behind the effort to raise money.
“It’s been a pleasure and a real insight visiting the Guildhall today.”
