The Devon Clinic 3 Peaks Challenge

Picture this: scaling the highest peaks of Scotland and Wales within a mere 24 hours. Yes, that is right – just 24 hours in one day to conquer Ben Nevis, Scafell Pike, and Mount Snowdon and it’s all to help people who have lived with Domestic Abuse, whether it is current or historic.

#24HourChallenge #TheDevonClinic #24for24 #SupportOurCause

The Devon Clinic is a local charity that ensures all our work is for the benefit of the local community, and any funds we receive are reinvested into the services provided by our Clinic to support people with their mental health and well-being. Our aim is to be able to provide accessible, affordable, compassionate and evidence-based care to everyone in our local community.

The people undertaking this adventure leave Torbay on Wednesday, July 10th, as they journey to Fort William, Scotland, gearing up for the challenge’s start at 6 am on Thursday, July 11th. First up, Ben Nevis! After conquering Scotland’s peak, they will be whisked away to Cumbria for Scafell Pike, and then off to tackle Mount Snowdon, all within the 24for24 timeline. The clock ticks as they push their limits, aiming to have reached the summit and got back down Mount Snowdon by 6 am on Friday, July 12th.

But their journey does not end there – back to Devon they go, to the Mason Arms in Torquay, for a well-deserved celebration with a quiz and live music.

It is a feat that seems daunting, but with your support, they can do it! Every donation counts, supporting every step they take can help so many people in our local community. Let us rally together, share their journey, and make a difference. Join us in cheering them on, every step of the way!

Let us say a MASSIVE THANK YOU to

  • Rob O ‘Neil and George Holman from O’Neil & Holman Painting and Decorating who painted the clinic for us.
  • Craig Washington from CWPT Exercise & Nutrition, who has the gargantuan task of helping our founder run his first ever marathon at the tender age of 60
  • Chris Penney from Signco, a local signmaker who did The Devon Clinics’ windows
  • Arron Graham from The Fire Protection Group who supplies our fire extinguishers and fire protection
  • Matt, Tamsin Philip who is a sports therapist from Personal Best Therapy and providing treatments on a donation basis to help the clinic.
  • Dean Cartright from Cartwright Coffee who is producing a rather delicious ‘Devon Clinic Blend’ of coffee with a percentage of profit going to the clinic.
  • Pal Zoltan from Bloomin Gardens & Landscapes
  • Matt Crosscombe from Prestige Coatings Ltd,
  • Simon Putt from Devon Tree Services
  • Chris Parker from RhinoPlay

and let’s not forget Pauline Astle from Pauline’s Plants who donated some hanging baskets to brighten up the outside of the clinic. Pauline will be helping with the driving to Scotland and back to Devon via the Lake District and Snowdonia.

The first three G12 Business Networking Club Members with Moortrees Certificates!

We are thrilled to announce a special milestone in our G12 Business Networking Club journey as we celebrate the dedication and commitment of three outstanding members. Join us in congratulating Stuart Ashdown, Sarah White and Ian Molloy, who have each been presented with their certificates from Moortrees as renewing or new members of our South Devon Business Networking group.

At the heart of our networking club lies a commitment to fostering meaningful connections, facilitating growth, and nurturing a spirit of collaboration. It is through the dedication and active participation of all our members that our group continues to thrive and evolve.

We are proud of our partnership with Moor Trees, a local charity dedicated to restoring native woodland on Dartmoor and as part of this partnership, G12 will plant a tree for every new member who joins the group.



We extend our heartfelt gratitude to Stuart, Sarah and Ian for their ongoing commitment to the G12 Business Networking Club. Your dedication, enthusiasm, and willingness to connect and collaborate have enriched our community immeasurably.

As we celebrate this momentous occasion, let us reflect on the power of connection, the importance of collaboration, and the impact that each of us can make when we come together with a shared purpose.

May our trees stand as a testament to our contributions and serve as a reminder of the growth, strength, and resilience of our G12 Business Networking Club family.

Sarah White VA

One of the lessons I have learnt over many years in a family business is that just because you can do something, it doesn’t mean you should be doing it. As business owners we are very good at taking responsibility for everything and just plain putting in the hard graft needed. But there are times when accepting help is good for your business, good for your productivity and very good for your sanity!

With a focus on bookkeeping, I provide a full range of administrative support services – email, diary and event coordination; minute taking, transcription and data entry; document creation, compliance, record keeping; and of course, invoicing, debt follow up, supplier management, bank reconciliation, preparation of the books ready for the accountant, payroll and VAT returns.

Know you need some administrative support but not sure how it would work for you? That’s great – let’s have a call/zoom/coffee and chat about ways we can work together. I offer packages from 2 hours a month upwards plus ad hoc projects so can fit with your plans and budget.

Moor Trees

Moor Trees exists to grow and plant native broadleaf woodland on Dartmoor in response to the climate and nature crisis. Since 2000, our charity (number 1081142) has planted over 155,000 trees. Moor Trees is unique as we collect seed of native broadleaf tree species from local sites, stratify, nurture, and grow them from one to four years (dependant on tree species) in our two community tree nurseries, before the young whips are planted by our volunteers in their thousands each winter to restore Dartmoor’s lost temperate rainforest.

Your business can join us on this journey, to combat the climate and nature crisis on your Dartmoor doorstep.
