Our Team

Devon for Europe is run by a team of dedicated volunteers, and a huge amount of work goes on behind the scenes. We have no paid staff, so every penny you donate goes directly to our campaign. We are here to help you with whatever you need, so please do get in touch with us and we will respond as soon as possible.
