Creating Precious Moments

At Rowcroft Hospice, we believe in making every day the best day possible for people with a life-limiting illness. So we do what we can to create ‘Precious Moments’ for patients and their families, whether it’s a boat trip up the River Dart or a visit from a beloved pet.

Calling all local businesses!

We want to partner with local businesses to offer more families Precious Moments. Do you know an organisation that might be able to support us? It could be a restaurant, a hotel, a leisure complex, a theatre, or another business. Please ask them to get in touch with our fundraising team by calling 01803 217419 or emailing

You may have heard of some of the experiences we’ve already made happen, including:

  • Arranging for the Red Arrows to fly over the hospice during the Torquay Regatta to honour a former Royal Naval pilot
  • Organising a night at The Grand Hotel for a patient and his wife
  • Inviting a patient’s teenage daughters in for a sleepover
  • Hosting a performance by classical singing star Keedie Green (pictured), when a patient was unable to attend the Andrea Bocelli concert she’d been looking forward to
  • Helping a patient’s friends to throw an afternoon tea party at the hospice

Everyone deserves the chance to celebrate special times with their friends and family. But for people with a life-limiting illness, health and financial concerns can make it difficult to access experiences such as these. So please do share this article to help us reach organisations in South Devon and further afield. You can also visit our Precious Moments webpage to find out more.

Together, we can bring even more Precious Moments to families across South Devon.
