'Sleepwalkers' raises £145k for Rowcroft Hospice

(Last Updated On: July 29, 2014)

Over 2000 women from around South Devon put on their walking shoes Saturday night for Rowcroft Hospice’s forth and largest Sleepwalk.

Over £145,000 has been pledged so far for the charity.

Walkers (all female from age 10 and up) took part in the 5 or 10 mile route around the bay which started and finished at the Riviera Centre, Torquay where there was a carnival themed warm up.

Sarah Morris, Rowcroft Hospice at Home and Inpatient Unit Manager, said: “Thank you to everyone who supported this year’s Sleep Walk, and helped to raise such a fantastic amount for Rowcroft. The funds raised will help us to continue to deliver the specialist care we provide for over 1800 patients living with life-limiting illnesses in South Devon every year, as well as their families, friends, carers and loved ones.

“Whether we’re caring for patients in the hospice’s 17-bed Inpatient Unit, or closer to patients’ own homes via our Community team and Hospice at Home services, we are dedicated to taking care further for the people of South Devon. Thank you once again for your support, I can’t tell you how much it means to us.”

Rowcroft’s Sleep Walk launched in 2011 and since then has raised over £500,000 for the hospice.
