Hospiscare Heroes - From Football to Half Marathons


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.


Three Brixington Blues players at the sea front


A huge thank you to the Brixington Blues YFC who have raised an amazing £1138 on their 'Road to Wembley' challenge.

They challenged players, coaches and family members to run, walk, skip, hop (or whatever else took their fancy!) over twelve days to complete the 178 miles together from Exmouth to Wembley. This target was soon smashed and they ended up completing 5,211 miles! You can find out more about their challenge here.


Hospiscare nurse with a delivery of Clinell wipes


We are sending our thanks to GAMA Healthcare Ltd. who sent us a donation of Clinell Universal wipes to the value of £350! We are extremely grateful to Nicole and the team for making this happen.


Singer Mawgan Stott


Thank you also to professional singer Mawgan Stott who has raised an incredible £312 for Hospiscare by performing two live streamed musical performances. 


Whimple half marathon runners Nick and Teresa


We are sending huge thanks to Nick and Teresa who organised a Whimple Half which saw people taking on different half challenges including half marathons and half 10k.

Nick and Teresa's event raised a fantastic £1,800 for our charity.


A girl with a medal around her neck


Thank you also to 10 year-old Sofia who took part in the Whimple Half event by running 10k with her mum around the lanes. Sofia raised an amazing £300 towards the total Whimple Half fundraising effort.


Hospiscare supporter in cycling gear


Finally, thank you to Alex Myers who cycled from Exeter to Dunkirk without having to leave his garage! Alex set up his static bike in his garage and cycled the incredible distance over the boiling hot bank holiday weekend. Alex raised over £1,500 - thank you!

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.
