Hospiscare Heroes – From scarecrows to lockdown songs

Our Hospiscare Heroes have been busy over the last couple of weeks, 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.


Scarecrows on a lawn for Hospiscare

We are sending our thanks to Gaynor and Peter Daniels in Whimple for supporting Hospiscare by making scarecrows in their village.

A huge thank you goes to Paul Godfrey, pictured above with Hospiscare fundraiser Toni Hiscocks. Paul has been raising funds for Hospiscare during the coronavirus pandemic and to date he has raised a whopping £3443! Paul will soon be increasing that total as he recently held an auction for an Exeter Chiefs rugby shirt and he is continuing to clean windows, mow lawns, trim hedges and offer his services to the vulnerable people and key workers in and around his home town of Ottery. We are so grateful for your support Paul.

A huge thank you to Cantilena Choir for their amazing lockdown song released in support of Hospiscare after we cared for their colleague. The song has raised an incredible £1,380!

Handmade patchwork quilts

Thank you also to Christine Thompson and Wendy Chaffey from Honiton who continue to make craft items out of donated material, all in aid of Hospiscare.

Face masks on sale in aid of Hospiscare

Thank you to Helen Laws, a former Hopsiscare fundraising volunteer, for making face masks throughout the pandemic. Helen has made the masks available at the bottom of her driveway so that people are able to take them for a donation to Hospiscare. To date, Helen has raised an incredible £135 and has more orders to fulfil. You can find the masks at Lime Kiln Lane, Countess Wear if you would like to purchase one while stocks last.

We are really grateful to Phil Smyth and the amazing New Heroes who held some lockdown gigs for Hospiscare and raised an amazing £280 as well as supporting our first ever Virtual Twilight Walk last weekend.
