Tim Davies, a local solicitor in Barnstaple, has commended the Vivian Moon Foundation for the help he received towards his studies several years ago.

He said:

"I received a donation from the Vivian Moon Foundation in 2008 to assist me with my legal studies and course costs. This financial assistance and support came at a difficult time and really made a positive difference to me. I completed my studies and qualified as a solicitor and returned to North Devon in 2013. I now run a company from our Barnstaple office that acts on a national basis that presently employs 10 local people. It is my intention to make an annual donation to the Vivian Moon Foundation to allow them to offer another person the assistance I received in 2008."
