Westward Living Luxury Holiday Cottages support the Freedom Centre with a donation of 40 beds.

Published: 25 March, 2021

A provider of luxury self-catering accommodation on the North Devon coast has donated 40 beds from its self-catering cottages to local charity the Freedom Centre in Barnstaple.

Westward Living self-catering holiday cottages in Westward Ho! are proud to be able to support a local North Devon charity with a donation of 40 beds.  Freedom is a well-known “needs led” local charitable organisation who support the vulnerable and socially excluded in the local community of North Devon. 

Owners of Westward Living Kathy & Chris Murdoch had heard about the outstanding work done carried out by Freedom and were delighted to have the opportunity to support them by donating 40 beds from the Westward Living Holiday cottages in Westward Ho!

The Freedom Day centre believes everyone has value and with love and support can be helped to reach their own potential. They provide non-judgemental support that allows each person to find solutions that work and help them to regain control of their lives.  The supported housing provides safe houses for vulnerable people and the beds will used to assist their clients in North Devon.

Kathy Murdoch said, “We put a post out on social media, the Westward Ho! community page, asking for local charities to contact us if they were in need of beds, we were so pleased to have been able to work with Phil and his team and it’s a really great result that the beds have gone to Freedom.  

Coincidentally the day that we spoke to Chief Executive Phil Noall and coordinated the donation, I was contacted by an old friend who had benefited from the services of Freedom many years ago, it certainly transformed his life and I sincerely hope that our donation of beds will help others to get a good night’s sleep on their journey with Freedom”.

“In my opinion, Devon offers the best accommodation UK, and it’s important that we support the community through tourism" For more information about the Freedom Centre visit the website on https://freedomcommunityalliance.org.uk
