We can’t believe it’s all over for this year, but what a night to remember! Over 750 walkers and runners met at The Maer in Exmouth in July to walk in memory of loved ones and to raise funds for our patients and their families. So far a whopping £42,000 has been raised with donations still rolling in. We know this will make such a difference to the lives of local people – so we’d like to say thank you to all the brilliant people who made it happen.
Firstly, an enormous thank you goes out to all the amazing event arena, photography, and marshal volunteers – our events simply couldn’t happen without you, you are all amazing.
We’d also like to thank The Exeter, who kindly sponsored the Twilight Walk, as well as all of the other business that helped out in so many ways:
John Capon – Otter Windows
And of course a big thank you to our amazing entertainers for bringing a sparkle to the evening!
Events and Community Fundraising Manager Louise Jones said: “It was an amazing atmosphere on the day – the sun was shining down on these inspirational women! Many were walking in memory of loved ones or for those currently receiving care at Hospiscare and we really couldn’t provide the services that we do without supporters like those braving the heat on Saturday. Seeing all of the pink ladies walking down the sea front was just awesome!”
If you took part and haven’t yet returned your sponsorship, please send your sponsorship forms and a cheque made payable to 'Hospiscare' to 'Freepost RTJT-YSLK-ASAA, Hospiscare, Searle House, Dryden Road, Exeter, EX2 5JJ'. Alternatively you can pay your cash and sponsor forms in at any of our shops.
Once again, a big thank you to everyone involved and to all those who took part!
We love seeing all that you do for Hospiscare so, if you are planning on doing any fundraising, please direct message us on Facebook or email firstname.lastname@example.org so that we can recognise your efforts. We couldn’t do what we do without you.
