Devon Air Ambulance is delighted to have been selected as one of two charities that Exeter Chief’s fullback player, Phil Dollman, is championing with the support of his testimonial committee.

In celebration of his 10th Testimonial Year his first initiative is to launch a special Cookie Club Cookbook with tasty contributions from fellow team members.

The recipe book will feature 14 delicious cookie recipes, with one page left blank for a fan's own special recipe, which is being auctioned to the highest bidder.

‘I’m delighted to have been granted a testimonial year by the board of Exeter Chiefs,’ says Phil. ‘It’s been an honour to represent this club in what has been an outstanding era. My testimonial will give me an opportunity to support two fantastic charities: Devon Air Ambulance and the Exeter Foundation.’

Phil, who moved to the South West from Wales 10 years ago, added,

‘Devon is an exceptional place to live and my family and I are very lucky to call it home. Having spent some time with the crew it’s clear what they do on a daily basis is extraordinary and impacts positively on so many people. I’m delighted I can do my bit to support them.’

The auction winner will enjoy a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to attend a photoshoot with the Cookie Club team to launch the book. They will also receive their own limited-edition coffee table copy of the book, and a set of chef’s whites that has been signed by the recipe book contributors.

‘It’s a unique and exciting prize,’ says Caroline Creer, Fundraising and Communications Director at Devon Air Ambulance. ‘I’m confident fans will be keen to bid generously, not only because of the chance to have such a special experience, but because the winning bid will help Devon’s air ambulances to fly.’
