Hospiscare Heroes - Concerts, Croissants, Crafts & More!


This week's Hospiscare Heroes have been raising money through music, fine dining, crafts and more! Read on to find out all about what they've been up to.


Devon and Somerset Fire and Rescue Service Band


Thank you to Devon and Somerset Fire and Rescue Service Band who hosted a lovely concert on the 6th April in St Thomas which raised an amazing £329.69 for Hospiscare. Also thanks to St Thomas Methodist Church for the use of their lovely venue for nothing and of course our brilliant Hospiscare volunteers.


Fine dining in Alphington


On the same evening we had a first for Hospiscare: a Fine Dining Evening in Alphington with Jordan from So Devoted Weddings and Events. The evening was very well received - everybody had a lovely time and raised an incredible £1010.00 for Hospiscare.

A big thank you also goes to Exminster Golf Club Senior Ladies, who have chosen Hospiscare as their charity of the year this year.


Jess and Matt Macan's Croissant and Fizz morning


Jess and Matt Macan held a Croissant and Fizz morning at their home on the 13 April and said, “We had about 50 people and made just short of £600 at the Croissant and Fizz morning on Saturday.” Great news and thanks to Jess and Matt and their helpers.

Thank you also to David Wilson Homes for their generous donation of £1,000 via the Pinhoe and Broadclyst Support Group.


Volunteers at West Hill Craft Fair


Thanks to all the hard working volunteers involved in the West Hill Craft Fair, 6 April, who raised a fantastic sum for Hospiscare.

Also an enormous thank you to our amazing Chagford Support Group who put on a concert “Sad Songs Happy Songs” with James Goodwin, Annie McGee and The Electroleles. The evening was well supported and raised an amazing £558.00.


The Dockneys concert in aid of Hospiscare at the Old Picture House, Seaton


On Friday 22nd March ‘The Dockneys’ played at a gig at The Old Picture House in Seaton in memory of local ex-firefighter Steve Smith. The event was organised by his wife, Wendy Smith, and raised an incredible £1,600 on the evening, which was to be split between Hospiscare who looked after Steve whilst he was unwell and the Firefighters’ Benevolent Fund. A huge thank you to the band, venue, organisers and volunteers for a brilliant evening.
