Hospiscare Heroes – From pig racing to coastal challenges

Our Hospiscare Heroes have been flexing their super powers to support our charity in an incredible variety of ways

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.

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.

We are sending a huge thank you to Kim Ingersent and her family for raising an incredible £600 in memory of Kim’s mum, Linda. The family really threw themselves into their fundraising for Hospiscare by organising social events and table top sales, as well as selling sweet cones to raise funds. We are so grateful to Kim and her family for supporting our hospice in Linda’s memory.

Thank you to Bruv’s Bar in Honiton for holding a pig racing night in aid of Hospiscare, resulting in a grand fundraising total of £618.21! Thank you to everyone who came and donated so generously and a special thanks to all of those who re-donated their winnings.

Finally, we would like to thank ‘The Otter Trotters’ – sisters Samantha Durkin and Rachel Nicklin – who took on the 25km route of the South West Coast Challenge for Hospiscare. The sisters have raised over £500 so far and to donate to their fundraising, please click here.
