Steve Perryman MBE, former Tottenham Hotspur star and now Director of Football at Exeter City FC, presided over the kick-off for Devon Air Ambulance’s latest retail venture, its new Furniture and Electrical store in Summerland Street, Exeter on Saturday.
The new venture brings the number of Devon Air Ambulance shops to 15 across the county.
Steve Perryman said “I am delighted to be opening this shop on behalf of Devon Air Ambulance. We are all aware of the irreplaceable service the charity provides, none more so than sports people. I think people will be very impressed with what this specialist furniture and electrical shop has to offer.”
Martin Bell, DAAT Retail Director, said: “Retail income plays an increasingly significant part in our fundraising efforts and we have invested in developing our expertise, in retail technology and in staff training to ensure we provide a thoroughly professional service.
“Opening the furniture and electrical store is the latest stage in our retail strategy. It is a response to what customers want and we hope plenty of people will visit the new shop to see the range of quality goods and value for money prices we can offer. We are all very grateful to Steve for giving his time to help us with the launch of this new and exciting venture and to all of the businesses and people who have donated some fantastic stock.”
