We’re excited to announce a brand new summer-themed fundraising event – The Hospiscare Summer Walk, taking place on Saturday 8 July.
Starting and ending at Darts Farm near Topsham, the seven-mile circular route along the Exe Estuary will be a celebration of all things summer, so be sure to dig out your coolest sun hats and shades.
Upon arrival at Darts Farm, everyone will be greeted with an award-winning gelato ice cream (we’ve taste tested and promise it’s delicious!). Along the route, walkers will be rewarded with a well-earned strawberries and cream picnic in Lympstone, and a summery glass of Pimms (or non-alcoholic alternative) at the Puffing Billy, before heading back to Darts Farm.
The walk will offer beautiful estuary views, entertainment and photo opportunities aplenty along the way. Suitable for a wide range of ages and abilities, everyone is welcome, providing the perfect opportunity to organise a summer get-together with friends or family – even four-legged friends can join in the fun!
Tori Vince, Events Manager at Hospiscare says: “We’re very excited to announce our new Summer Walk. Fundraising events like this simply wouldn’t be possible without the ongoing support and generosity we receive from the local community and the response so far has been fab. We’re hopeful the event will raise £45,000 to fund the hospice’s care for local people and their families affected by terminal illness.”
We’re so grateful for the support we have received so far from the local community – The Summer Walk would not be possible without the support and generosity of our event sponsors, Jurassic Fibre, and event partners, Darts Farm.
Annabel McCabe, Events and Sponsorship Manager with Jurassic Fibre, says: “We’re delighted to be the headline sponsors for the Hospiscare Summer Walk after two years of sponsoring the successful Twilight Walk. Members of our team at Jurassic are also looking forward to getting their walking boots on again and taking part.
“Hospiscare’s vital work supporting terminally ill patients and their families is very close to all our hearts at Jurassic Fibre.”
Michael Dart of Darts Farm says: “As a community-focused business, we understand the importance of supporting local and giving back where we can. We’re pleased to be partnering with Hospiscare for their new Summer Walk and helping to create a memorable event for all to enjoy, while raising much-needed funds to support the local hospice which is very dear to our heart.”
