Adrian Knott Fundraising

The CEO of AK Partnership is donating the last week’s summer profits from his Airbnb Devon holiday home to Torbay & South Devon NHS Foundation Trust. Boasting sea views and an outside pool, the 170 year-old Grade-2 listed villa is rented out for short-term holidays through the online platform.

​In the past he has raised £2,537 running the London Marathon in 2015 and £1,100 in 2017 with a charity fund raising golf day, both for Maggie’s Centres, a cancer support charity for relatives of cancer sufferers.

Daredevil Mr Knott also did a 3,500 feet skydive in 2016 with five other friends raising a total of £3,660.

“My children were both born at Torbay Hospital, so it was the natural choice to support a great local hospital,” said Knott. “It’s a small something but I’ve been impressed by the hard work of the NHS staff fighting the pandemic and supporting those affected by the coronavirus. The impact of the situation hit home hard when a friend recently recovered from the virus, having had a near death experience in March.

​“Lots of families have spent time in isolation or shielding because of COVID-19 and have not been able to have a holiday. I feel lucky to have a nice house by the sea to rent out. I have lots of bookings this summer following Boris Johnson’s recent announcement that people can travel on holiday now,” commented Knott. “So with only one week left available on 24 July, I felt I wanted to give something back and will donate the profits from this booking to a charity that has supported families of COVID-19 sufferers.”

I was really pleased to be able to give something back. My cousin got ill as well with COVID-19 on her 70th birthday. Luckily she got well quite quickly. Also, so many people I know have friends and relatives who have suffered badly through COVID-19. I’ve been so pleased with the way the NHS have looked after them, it’s nice to be in a position to give something back.
