Donated to jason’s £3000.00 Goal

jason’s story

On 3rd August 2019, for his 54th birthday, Dr Jason Clunie will attempt to cycle 54 miles of Bridford Hill in the Teign Valley: 27 times up and 27 times down. This hill is 1 mile long with a maximum gradient of 19%.

So in statistics:

  • 4200m of vertical climb (Everest is 8800m)
  • 54 miles total
  • Very tired legs.

Acorn is a very valuable part of caring for our local community, so please give generously.

If on the day anyone fancies trying one ascent of the hill then please feel free to join in.

All funds raised will be passed to the charity irrespective of whether my target is reached, not reached or exceeded.


Acorn Community Support

Acorn Community Support is a small registered charity, founded in 1989, which works closely with the Cheriton Bishop & Teign Valley GP team in mid Devon.

We have an office in the Christow surgery, employ two part-time staff and work with a team of dedicated volunteers to provide a range of services which compliment and expand on the services provided by the Practice.

We are also able to help people living in our area who use other GP surgeries. Funding is provided by DCC Adult & Community Services and via donations and legacies received mainly from the local community.

Our charitable purpose is the advancement of health and well being with elderly, frail and disabled people in our community who with additional help can continue to live independently with privacy and dignity in their own homes.

We also help all our adult community in a variety of ways which are described in this website.

The Trustees follow the guidelines laid down by the Charities Commission – more details on our charity can be found on the Charities Commission website.

Registered Charity Number: 801533.

What makes us wonderful?

We recognise the selfless commitment made by fundraisers who train for months to run marathons, face their fears by jumping out of aeroplanes or open their homes to the community for charity bakes and coffee mornings. We believe the charities they support should receive EVERY PENNY from their fundraising efforts.

We also believe that Gift Aid (a scheme enabling charities to reclaim tax on donations made by UK taxpayers) should be directed IN FULL to the charities. This is why the Wonderful Organisation does not generate profit (or even cover costs) by deducting money from fundraisers' sponsors or Gift Aid contributions.

We are a non-profit organisation funded entirely by like-minded, philanthropic businesses. That's what makes us wonderful!
