Throughout the summer, 40 gardeners took part in our annual Hospiscare Open Gardens campaign; opening their gates and welcoming members of the community to explore their beautiful green spaces in return for a donation. We’re thrilled to share that thanks to the support of our community, this has been a record-breaking year – raising £51,716.44 and counting to support specialist end-of-life care across the heart of Devon.
Where we help
Caring in the heart of Devon
We support people across the heart of Devon, from Exeter to Okehampton. And in most of those towns, you’ll find a Hospiscare charity shop helping us raise vital funds!See our locations
“Hospices are amazing places. Just seeing everything that you do for your patients at Hospiscare means so much. John felt safe here.”
“The care and efficiency is second to none. I cannot praise the service we are getting too highly. Action is quick, feedback is prompt and the smiles and concern for both of us is unbelievable. Thank you all from the bottom of my heart. You are wonderful.”
“Heart failure isn’t curable, it’s a serious long term condition. But with the support from the Hospiscare Heart2Heart sessions I am not as worried as I was before... I feel reassured with the help I’ve had, and thankfully the medication and advice seems to be working.”
We’re excited to share that we have opened a brand-new, pop-up charity shop in Exeter City Centre, stocking a range of pre-loved clothing, unique décor and much more. The shop is located on Sidwell Street, opposite John Lewis, who kindly partnered with us providing a team of staff to help with preparations ahead of opening – we are so grateful for their time and support!
Meet our fundraising volunteer, Steve Pearcy. Steve is one of our longstanding volunteers. He started fundraising for us 19 years ago. He explains, “My wife was brought into the hospice for two weeks at the end of her life. Our children were only two and four at the time. She was given a private room so I could take the children to see her right up until the end. I will never be able to repay Hospiscare for what they did for us.”
