We believe that the Kingdom of God is near. We would love the opportunity to pray with you and for you.
We meet on the first Monday of the month between 1.30pm - 3.30pm. (Except Bank Holidays)
We are a small group for carers that meets weekly to offer support and circulate information. Our meetings are held in a friendly, informal setting that offers a safe and confidential place to chat. We can also signpost you to other helpful services. All new members are very welcome.
Lyn Renouf is intending to do a major Himalayan expedition in the autumn, to raise money for the Exeter Hospice. To help with this money raising we are intending to hold various events. The first of these is on Sunday the 16th of February – after our service there will be a charity cake stall in the foyer. Please liaise with Lyn – there are cakes to be made and sold!
I work as a Clinical Nurse Specialist for Hospiscare , which gives local expert palliative care to patients in Exeter, Mid and East Devon. At any one time we are caring for between 700-800 patients, mostly in the community but also in the 12-bed hospice in Exeter. The annual cost of this service is approx. £8.5 million pounds, of which we only get 1/6th from the NHS, the rest is raised by fundraising, legacies and other donations. In November 2020 I am undertaking a 2-day volunteer project in the hospice in Nepal and a 5 day trek in the Himalayas to raise funds, I need to raise £3500 in total, the trek is 56 kilometres but goes up to 3,400 metres in height so quite challenging. I have been busy doing some walks to get fit and raise funds, knitting hats, scarves and gloves to sell and baking Christmas cakes for staff. I still have still have a 8" cake @ £25 fully iced (could be divided into smaller cakes) and two smaller 6"round cakes @£10 for sale if anyone would like one. Julie has suggested that we sell some cakes with coffee after church, later in the year we are also planning to do a meal and quiz so would be grateful for support with these. Many thanks in anticipation of your support. Lynn Renouf
