First Great Western survey said: 'Give Gateway £1,186'
STAFF at First Great Western have raised more than £1,000 for a cash-strapped centre caring for people with learning difficulties.
The company decided to donate a pound to the Exeter Gateway Centre for every FGW staff survey that was completed. 1,186 members of staff gave their views.
David Crome, general manager west for First Great Western, visited the Exeter Gateway Centre, based behind the Mount Pleasant Health Centre, and presented a cheque for £1,186 to centre volunteer Bob Marles and all the clients.
David said: "We have a long-standing connection with the Gateway, which provides the most amazing support for adults with serious learning difficulties. It is an inspiration. The work they do without much support from anywhere, and with very little funding, is heart-warming. It is a fabulous local charity to be involved with."

Mr Marles said: "We are hugely grateful to First Great Western for supporting the centre.
"We were first established in 2005. First Great Western, over the past few years, has supported the centre with the purchase of computers. A lot of the people who come to the centre are reliant on it, so this money is vital to be able to continue to provide this support."
The money raised will be used to support our clients in future learning projects.
