Hospiscare Heroes - From Gin and Jazz to Honesty Tables




Here at Hospiscare, we are extremely grateful to all of our supporters and we love to see the innovative ways that our Hospiscare Heroes find to fundraise for us! Read on for the latest updates on how our Hospiscare Heroes have been supporting our charity across Exeter, Mid and East Devon.

A huge thank you to Mawgan Stott who will be performing a set of live Sunday sessions to raise money for our local charity. Her first event, a live Gin and Jazz session, will take place this Sunday 17 May at 4pm on Instagram and Facebook. You can tune in and watch the live performance on Sunday here


Hospiscare supporter and family


Thank you also to Katie Brown and her lovely family for raising £204 with an honesty table at the end of their drive. Katie's creative idea allowed her to raise vital funds for our charity whilst maintaining social distancing. Katie made a contact-free wooden board for a lucky dip, handmade cards and sweet jars. Katie and her family also organised a face mask colouring competition. 

Katie had planned to hold a Funday at her home near Honiton but due to the coronavirus outbreak, she was forced to postpone. A huge thank you to Katie and her two children pictured above, James aged 8 and Noah aged 3. 


Hearts for Hospiscare patients and family members


Thank you to Helen Pullen for donating hearts for Hospiscare patients and family members to help them feel close to each other. Helen has also made and donated headbands for our nurses and doctors to attach their masks to in order to protect their ears.


Honesty table for Hospiscare


Thank you also to Sally Reed, our very own Trainee Nursing Associate, who organised an honesty table at the front of her house crammed full of goodies for donations to Hospiscare.

Finally, thank you to Exeter music teacher Laura Morris and her pupils who put on a virtual concert on 10 May. Their audience of 51 people came from places as far away as India, France and Switzerland! The children played brilliantly and raised over £500 for Hospiscare. A huge thank you to everyone who played in the concert and supported the musicians by watching and donating. 

We love seeing all that you do for Hospiscare, so if you are planning any fundraising, please send us a direct message us on Facebook or email so that we can celebrate your efforts. We couldn't do what we do without you.
