This money is then pledged by the Foundation to projects and organisations in and around the city to promote future prosperity into Exeter and the surrounding areas.

Keiron is a Trustee of the Exeter Foundation & Nick a Trustee of Beep, BEEP is a charity set up to continue the vital work and repeat the spectacular success of the Rugby Empowering Employment Programme (REEP) part of the 2015 Rugby World Cup legacy.

The whole team help to raise money by holding Events such as quizzes and a Charity Golf Day (26th July this year) & taking part in the annual NB Big Challenge which this year is walking 3 canals in just 24 hours in June.
