At Thompson Jenner, we have committed to help charities in our local community. There are three charities that we help and support throughout the year, raising awareness and generating much-needed funds for the benefit of many worthy causes.
The Exeter Chiefs Foundation was set up in 2010 by some of Exeter’s and the surrounding regions top names in business and sport who joined together to use their expertise to raise money for charities and to support key projects across the region. The funds raised by the Foundation are to the benefit of many local schemes and charities, with no particular beneficiary. Local charities that have been supported include the Brandon Trust, Hospiscare, Exeter Community Services, Headway and the Exeter Samaritans.
Since inception, the charity has raised more than £1M and helped over 80 projects, charities and organisations .

Thompson Jenner is also proud to be a supporter of the Wooden Spoon charity, the children’s charity of rugby. The charity funds life-changing projects that support children and young people with disabilities or living in disadvantage.
Thanks to the support of almost 500 members and volunteers, the Devon branch has raised more than £1.4 million and supported nearly 40 local children’s projects since 2000. Some of the most recent Devon projects have included funding specialist rugby wheelchairs, new changing rooms for a hydrotherapy pool and an updated sensory room at a children’s hospice.

We are delighted to support the Royal Marines Charity and be part of the West Country 100 Dinner. The exclusive, invitation-only dinner serves to connect the charity’s expanding network with the Royal Marines. Launched last year, the West Country 100 is an exclusive club of 100 West Country businesses who are committed to raising £1,000 per year to support Royal Marines.
The Royal Marines Charity is an entirely self-funded charity, which aims to support Royal Marines in need, most notably, those whose careers have ended prematurely due to injury. Beneficiaries are supported through an intelligent combination of work placements, mentoring, training, financial support and full-time employment. Beyond this, the charity also provides support to Royal Marines and their families to overcome adversity through its expanding business network.
