Hospiscare Skydive Heroes

We are sending out a special thank you to those who took to the skies for our local charity

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. 

This week, we are sending out a special thank you to the amazing people who took on the skydive challenge to raise funds for local patients living with a terminal illness and their families.

Thank you to Harry Bates and Erin Eileen Ruth who jumped together as part of a surprise joint 18th birthday present. Although they didn’t fundraise, their parents paid £395 which meant that Hospiscare received £290!

Thank you to Mandi Holt who not only took on a skydive for Hospiscare but will also be doing a Wing Walk! Unfortunately, Mandi’s Wing Walk is postponed until 21 November but at least it gives her plenty of time to prepare! If you would like to donate to Mandi’s skydive and Wing Walk, click here.
