This year The HR Dept Exeter have decided to become a member of the elite Hospiscare 40 Club! If you haven’t come across the 40 Club yet, it is a group of 40 local businesses raising money to mark now the 41st year of Hospiscare. 

Hospiscare has been supporting people with a life-limiting illness for 40 years. Expanding the area over that time they now cover Exeter, Mid and East Devon. If you’ve been diagnosed with any type of terminal illness, their expert doctors and nurses are there to help. The services include support at home, a specialist palliative care ward, out-patient clinics, and supportive therapies.

Hospiscare support over 2,500 people each year, in some of the hardest times possible. As a local charity, they need to raise around £8 million a year to continue to provide the care, relying on the generous support of local people and communities.

The HR Dept Exeter are only a small team but like so many have experienced family members and dear friends who have required their services or services like theirs in other areas. 

So watch this space! You probably won’t find us jumping out of planes or climbing mountains, but we will be contributing in our own individual ways and glad of any support you can give to us to support this wonderful and important charity.

On 16th September 2023, Debbie our Senior HR Business Partner achieved an amazing feat! Completely outside her comfort zone as height is not her favourite thing, she completed a 110ft abseil down Meldon Viaduct near Okehampton. She decided to do this in a moment of madness, as part or The HR Dept Exeter commitment to our charity this year Hospiscare. We are a member of their 40 Club, a group of businesses who have all committed to raising at least £1,000 this year, in support of the 40th anniversary of Hospiscare, and to help facilitate the work that they carry out; supporting individuals and their families with life limiting illness across the heart of Devon. They rely on generous support of local people and communities to keep their very important services running.

Debbie says, “when I was on the ledge ready to descend, I thought I wouldn’t be able to do it, however I faced my fears and let go of the edge.”

She was cheered on by members of her family and the rest of the team at The HR Dept Exeter. We are all very proud of her achievement and the amazing amount she has raised. Thank you to everyone who has sponsored her
