Candles on the Canal
21st Sep 2019

Candles on the Canal is a memorial event to celebrate the lives of loved ones. Some people may wish to fundraise to help support the work of Hospsicare, for this we are very grateful.

Every £1 you raise is of huge support to Hospiscare, and helps us care for terminally ill patients and their families in the community of Exeter, Mid and East Devon. We support people through our ward in Exeter, our day hospices in Exeter, Tiverton and Honiton and our many specialist nurses who visit people in their own homes.

Often we are asked what difference a certain amount of money makes to the help we can provide. You may like to set a target to reach, if it helps here are the cost of just some of the services we are able to provide because of the generous support of the local community.

How your money helps…

  • £100 would pay for a visit from one of our community nurses to patients who need our end-of-life support at home.

  • £100 would support 2 young children needing bereavement support through counselling and specialist child bereavement books.

  • £50 would pay for an hour of Day Hospice support for a local person

  • £30 would pay for a relaxing complimentary therapy for a patient or family member.

In total Hospiscare needs to raise £7 million pounds to keep the doors open and all our services running.
