President's Charity - Thanks for amazing support

North Devon Hospice has been named as
charity of the year for the Devon & Somerset Law Society,
as nominated by President Mark Roome.

We are coming to the end of a fantastic year-long partnership between North Devon Hospice and the Devon and Somerset Law Society.


Society President, Mark Roome, chose the hospice as his charity of the year having seen at close quarters just what a different their care makes to local patients and families, all of whom are affected by life-limiting illnesses such as cancer.


Chief Executive of North Devon Hospice, Stephen Roberts, thanked members of DASLS for their tremendous support throughout the year. “This has been a very fruitful partnership, where some really fun opportunities have been taken up by members, and in turn, vital funds have been raised for the hospice. We’ve seen Society members get down and dirty by taking part in our Mission:Unbreakable commando challenge event, and also donate generously at the annual Somerset dinner. It was an honour to attend this year and speak to you all about how your support allows us to care for local people going through the toughest of times.”


Mark Roome said of the charity of the year partnership, “I’m very proud of the way that members of DASLS have taken this cause to their hearts and shown such generous support. North Devon Hospice is very dear to me, being based in the same town as my own practice. The care they provide is absolutely second to none, and there are few families in this area who have not been touched by their loving support down the years. It has been a pleasure to have the hospice as my charity of the year, and my thanks go out to all members who have shown such fantastic support.”


Stephen Roberts added, that to mark the end of the partnership, there was one more notable fundraising activity happening… 10,000ft up in the air! “On Friday 10th March, we are holding a special DASLS Skydive event at Honiton airfield, where several brave folk will be doing a sponsored parachute jump in aid of North Devon Hospice. President Mark Roome has already signed up, alongside many other colleagues, and it’s not too late to join them! Once again, our immense thanks go to all who have supported North Devon Hospice throughout the last 12 months. It has helped us provide even more care to local people. For example, we have doubled our Hospice to Home team in the last year. They care for patients round the clock in their own homes when symptoms become more severe, but this kind of service development is only possible thanks to local generosity, just like we’ve seen from the Devon and Somerset Law Society.”
