In 2016, Di & Sammi Rosser took part in the Twilight Walk simply because it sounded like a fun event and they felt that Hospiscare was a charity worth supporting. They could never have imagined two years later they would be walking in memory, having placed a photo of their much loved husband and dad Jeff on their memory star and displaying it, with so many others, within the special memory tent at The Maer, Exmouth.
Members of Exeter Philharmonic Choir, which has recently raised money for the Lord Mayor's charity SSAFA Devon, attended a special reception and cheque presentation at the city’s Guildhall last week.
The event was to thank all the organisations who have contributed to a grand total of over £23,000 for SSAFA Devon, which provides practical and emotional support for serving personnel, veterans and military families. A collection held at Exeter Philharmonic Choir’s concert in March raised £726.66 for the charity.
Independent charity Devon Communities Together has announced a new partnership with Dartmoor Brewery, which will see the two Devon organisations working together to raise money to support communities throughout the county.
This year will once again see Hospiscare teaming up with local residents who are gladly opening their gardens in support of what is now a favourite staple in the charity’s calendar. This year, Hospiscare Open Gardens is entering its fifteenth year and to date has raised the awe inspiring amount of £227,000.
Saturday 6 July will be a BIG day in Exmouth for local charity Hospiscare. Exmouth and Lympstone Hospiscare will be holding their Family Fun Day at Manor Gardens from 10am – 4pm with live entertainment and lots of fun activities. Having had a great day with the whole family it will then be time for the mums, nans and aunties to don their pink tutus and bunny ears (not compulsory) and head on down to The Maer for either the Twilight Walk or 5K Fizz Run in aid of Hospiscare.
Keen trekkers and those seeking an exciting challenge will want to put 7 - 18 November 2020 in their diaries and sign up to trek in the Himalayas with Hospiscare. Hospiscare will be holding a presentation evening on 30 July open to all to find out details at Searle House in Exeter at 6pm.
For the past 8 years, Guide Dogs and TenPin Exeter have collaborated on a very successful fundraising evening. What began as a request for Raffle Prizes for another occasion, has turned into an annual event supported by staff, volunteers, friends & local businesses.
Hospiscare’s annual Coffee Morning event is now under way. Throughout the area, people are signing up to raise funds for the local charity by holding coffee mornings in their homes, community halls and even their local parks. Businesses, too, are getting ready to bake and boil for Hospiscare.
Last year, Hospiscare supporters held more than 100 coffee mornings, together raising over £15,000. The charity is hoping to beat that target this year and hoping to raise a whopping £30,000.
