Hospiscare Heroes – From ploughing matches to coffee mornings

Our Hospiscare Heroes have been as busy as ever, finding innovative ways to fund raise for our charity at this difficult time

Our Hospiscare Heroes are truly super; week after week, they support our charity with their fundraising endeavours across Exeter, Mid and East Devon. 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 men in front of a green John Deere tractor

We are sending a huge thank you to everyone who organised, took part in and attended the Hospiscare Charity Ploughing Match on 26 September. It was a beautiful sunny day and approximately 200 people attended to watch 30 tractors plough a 22 acre field. The event raised an amazing £570.10! We would like to say a special thank you to Richard Start and Gerald Knight for organising the event and thanks to Adam McKay Engineering for supporting the day.
