Brother-in-laws walk for Hospiscare
10:00am Saturday 15th February 2014 in Devon
A MID Devon man is encouraging people to come together for the 2014 Hospiscare Men’s Walk to support the local charity who gave ‘outstanding’ care to both his mother and mother-in-law in their final days.
Peter Firth took part in the 2013 Men’s Walk raising more than £750 for local charity Hospiscare.
Peter completed the 10k distance with his brother-in-law Shawn, both walking in memory of their mothers who had died within weeks of each other at the Exeter hospice.
Peter said: “In late 2011, I sadly lost both my mother and mother-in-law to cancer. They were admitted to the Exeter hospice within just a few weeks of each other.
“The level of care provided by Hospiscare was outstanding - nothing was too much trouble for them in their care and support of our mums and our families.
“We found Hospiscare highly professional, friendly and attentive, and we felt that our mums were being very well looked after in their last few days and weeks at the hospice.”
