Hospiscare Heroes – From the Virtual London Marathon to Olympus Mons

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.

We are sending out a special thank you this week to all of our supporters who took part in the Virtual London Marathon last weekend. They braved the rain and the wind to go the distance for our charity.
