Businesses from across East Devon and Exeter teamed up to make the ‘difference-of-a-lifetime’, raising £14,500 for Hospiscare.
During December more than 20 firms and traders rose to the challenge set by the charity to make a difference to families facing terminal illness over the holiday period.
Hospiscare thanked the 24 businesses who signed up to the charity’s 12 Days of Care campaign, where firms sponsored a period of care on the hospice ward.
Ruth Wills, Hospiscare nurse and ward manager, said: “The holidays really have the power to bring happiness and to give people the chance to make memories to remember forever.
“We send our thanks to everyone who has supported Hospiscare via the 12 Days of Care and throughout this pandemic – your support makes a lifelong difference to so many.”
Business supporting Hospiscare’s 12 Days of Care were Alansway Body Repair, Bradleys Estate Agents, Burrington Estates, Commercial Managed IT, Coverstructures, E-Plus, Exe Mortgages, Exeter and District Funeral Directors, Home Instead Senior Care Exeter and East Devon, and Howdens Exmouth.
Also raising the funds was Hunter Urology, Jurassic Fibre, LHC Design, Macwhirter Western Ltd, Marley Comms, Overmass & Chapple, Palmers Garage, RMC Build, Shoobridge Funeral Services, The Dolphin School, Tozers Solicitors, William Highbourne Wealth Management Ltd, Wollens Solicitors, and World of Country Life.
Hospiscare, supporting people and families in Exeter, Mid and East Devon, had its funding hit heavily in 2020 when the Covid-19 pandemic called a halt to fundraising events.
