Hospiscare Heroes – From memory trees to coffee mornings

Our Hospiscare Heroes have been flexing their super powers to support our charity at this difficult time

Our Hospiscare Heroes are truly super; week after week, they support our local charity with their fundraising endeavours across Exeter, Mid and East Devon and help to save our services for the future. Every pound raised can help keep our vital care service running for local people in need.

From all of us at Hospiscare, we are sending a huge thank you to all of our Hospiscare Heroes. Read on to find out how they have been flexing their super powers this week.

Four people holding a big cheque outside the Tally Ho pub

We are sending a huge thank you to The Tally Ho Inn, St Luke’s Church and Countess Wear Village Hall for holding a memory tree and festive fundraiser to support Hospiscare over Christmas. Together, they raised a phenomenal £2,300 for our local charity.

Thank you to everyone involved in the West Hill Coffee Morning, held on February 16 at St Michael’s Church. The event was really well-attended and there were plenty of tasty treats on offer. Thank you to the organisers, volunteers and all of those who went along and enjoyed a cuppa and something sweet! The event raised an impressive £330!

We are also sending our thanks to Zoe and the team at Exe Fitness for raising an impressive £100 with their latest fundraiser!

Thank you to Thomas Critchley, who took on an amazing challenge throughout February in memory of Steve Davies, “beloved father, uncle, brother and grandad – a true giant of a man; compassionate, strong and much loved.” Thom is a fitness instructor and chose to fundraise for his uncle Steve, a former Royal Marine, in a very unusual way: a 10,000 kettlebell swing challenge!

Thom’s epic challenge took place throughout the month of February and involved 500 swings per day, five days a week for four weeks using a 20kg kettlebell. Thom completed his challenge on 25 February and has raised over £715, smashing his original £500 target! To donate to Thom’s challenge, please click here.

Finally, we would like to say thank you, and good luck, to Michelle Monahan-Little who is taking on a 5k March swim to raise funds for our Save our Services Appeal. Michelle plans to complete her swimathon in five 1km chunks, mainly at the David Lloyd pool in Exeter. If you would like to donate to Michelle’s challenge and help save our services from drastic cuts, please click here.
