The theme for this year’s all-female Twilight Walk on Saturday is “Back To The '80s”.

Rebecca Goodenough and a group of friends are having a Hen Night with a difference. They are taking part in The Twilight Walk, a ladies only event in Exmouth on 8th July raising much needed funds for Hospiscare.

When she was just 13 years old Rebecca's mum died in St Michael’s Hospice, East Sussex. This was back in 1987 when it was a rarity to find a hospice, and at that time there were just six beds available at St Michael’s.

She recalls, “We just felt that mum was so lucky to be in a hospice. I know that sounds strange to say but it’s by far the best place to be if you...

Earlier in March, Hospiscare was delighted to welcome a ‘sell-out’ crowd of men and boys, who joined the Hospiscare Charity Men’s Walk 2017, walking 8 miles in the fine weather along the canal path from Double Locks to the Turf Hotel and back again, to enjoy a pint, a Chunk pasty and watch England beat Scotland to retain the Calcutta Cup.

Event fundraiser, Sharon Ewart said, ‘There was a fantastic atmosphere on the day. This is a very popular event where the vast majority of the men, many of whom have been touched by Hospiscare’s services, return year on year to support us.’...
