HOSPISCARE is encouraging men to take part in the charity’s Men’s Walk on Saturday, March 12 to help raise vital funds for patient care.

The charity has never needed support more in order to care for the local families who rely on them in the toughest of times.

You can choose from two ways to join the annual event.

You can either join the organised walk at the Double Locks in Exeter or you can plan an eight-mile local route of your choosing.

If eight miles isn’t enough of a challenge the walk can be of any length and can take place over a number of days as long as the last eight miles are on the Double Locks walk or at your chosen location for Men’s Walk.

Whichever way you join Hospiscare you will get your own Men’s Walk t-shirt, a pint courtesy of Exeter Brewery, a pasty supplied by Chunk of Devon, a day out at the rugby and the chance to support Hospiscare!

However you choose to take part, the sponsorship money you raise will make a huge difference in your local community and you will support Hospiscare’s patients and their families at a time when they need it most.

The past 18 months have been difficult for everyone in one way or another and the Covid-19 pandemic has had a catastrophic effect on the ability of Hospiscare to fund care.

The hospice’s income is not recovering quickly enough to keep pace with costs and Hospiscare is facing a large deficit.

Unless Hospiscare can raise £1 million in time for Men’s Walk 2022, the charity faces having to make drastic cuts to services.

So please, sign up to Men’s Walk today, start your fundraising and help “Hospiscare Save Our Services”.
