Organic fruit and vegetables are also delivered by a local supplier.
Giving Something Back
Their Community & Charity Committee sponsor a nominated charity which is voted for by employees. In 2015 they supported Rainbow Living which is a charity which supports adults with disabilities, mainly learning disability and their families by providing accommodation so that young and older adults with disabilities can live with peers, often moving out of the family home and into supported living. There are currently 2 houses, 1 in Exeter and 1 in Torquay, and they are helping to raise funds for a 3rd house in Exeter. They’ve supported Rainbow Living by attending a fashion show at John Lewis, baking cakes for sale, dress down days, a charity cycle ride of 72 miles, running a tuck shop, helping shoppers with their grocery packing in Sainsbury's and a car boot sale.
The organisation has an exceptional achievement award programme. Employees who are nominated for this receive a personal letter from the Chief Executive, and awarded either a bonus, vouchers or a weekend away. There is no limit how many times an individual can be nominated.
