Huge thanks to Olivia and her family who held a 'Big Coffee Morning' in April and raised an amazing £550.08 for Hospiscare. They had over 60 raffle prizes and 16 silent auction prizes, and it was a great success!
Thanks also to the 50 teams who took part in the 15th Marnie Burgoyne Memorial Golf Day at Exeter Golf & Country Club. They helped raise a fantastic £16,717 for Hospiscare.
The day is organised by a committee of volunteers and is held each year in memory of Marnie Burgoyne, who was part of the founding team that helped raise the money to build the hospice building, Searle House, which opened in 1992. Since the golf day began in 2005 more than £200,000 has been raised for the charity.
A big thank you to Exminster Methodist Church who held an afternoon tea in aid of Hospiscare. They raised a total of £535, which will go towards helping people in Devon receive the best possible care.
Thank you to the pupils of Colyton Grammar School who raised funds for Hospiscare by doing all sorts of activities, including selling candy canes at Christmas. The students came in to present a cheque for £200 and kindly played some music for our patients on the ward.
Many thanks also to Alexis Saffin, who is running numerous events in aid of her Hospiscare Himalayan Trek next year. To find out more about her events click on the links below:
And finally, a massive thank you to the Pidsley family, who held a charity auction, raffle, hog roast and cream teas. They had around 250 people attend the event, and raised an amazing total of £6,625.69 for Hospiscare!
