About Us

Rowcroft Hospice is proud to announce the launch of a new coastal challenge walk, D2D. The Dartmouth to Dawlish walking challenge will take place between Saturday 16 - Sunday 17 May, covering 34 miles of stunning local coastline.

The challenge starts with the ferry journey from Dartmouth to Kingswear, followed by some of the most challenging Coastpath round to Berry Head, home to the largest guillemot colony to be found along the south coast of England and seas of beautiful wildflowers.
The path continues through Brixham as the walk gradually flattens and walkers can enjoy the sandy beaches and gentle paths as they walk up towards Rowcroft Hospice in Torquay.
D2D participants are encouraged to camp in the stunning Rowcroft grounds or if preferred, there are plenty of local B&Bs. All walkers are encouraged to join us to build up their energy stores with a big BBQ in the evening.
On the second day, the walk starts with a few strenuous climbs overlooking Torbay, walkers stop for lunch at The Cary Arms in Babbacombe and then the walk flattens out along the famous railway line finishing at Dawlish.
Transport, refreshments, parking and the routes will be organised by Rowcroft. To find out more, visit rowcrofthospice.org.uk/events/dartmouth-to-dawlish-coastal-challenge-walk
Rowcroft's Corporate and Community Fundraising Manager, Alison Upton says: "We are so excited to be offering D2D as part of our Hospice Hero's challenges. We really wanted to create a fundraising challenge that made the most of the beautiful scenery on our doorstep.

"We are so lucky to live in such a stunning area, D2D really celebrates this!"

As with all Rowcroft events, participants are encouraged to collect sponsorship money to help support the outstanding care Rowcroft Hospice provides for people living with life-limiting illnesses in South Devon.

About Rowcroft Hospice
It takes time, compassion, medical expertise and money to help patients and families make the most of every day, but every year Rowcroft Hospice helps over 2,000 people living with life-limiting illnesses in South Devon to do just that.

By providing comfort, support and specialist services in patients' homes, the community and at Rowcroft's Inpatient Unit in Torquay, the hospice enables families to share precious and joyful moments when they are needed most – whether it's a beautiful wedding, remarkable reunion, simple thank you or gentle cuddle.

At Rowcroft's premises in Torquay, the hospice's team of doctors, nurses, social workers and a range of other health and social care professionals provide specialist care in its Inpatient Unit. Rowcroft also cares for out-patients and their loved ones, offering therapies, bereavement support and medical consultation in an environment that helps patients and families make the most of precious time together.

From Dartmouth to Dawlish, Rowcroft cares for ¾ of its patients in their own homes with a team of community nurse specialists, social workers, and bereavement volunteers. The team also provides occupational therapy, complementary therapy and music therapy, delivering a holistic approach tailored to individual needs.

Last year it cost £7.8 million to provide Rowcroft's services. As an independent charity, more than 70% of its funding comes from the incredible generosity of local people, without whom Rowcroft would not be able to fund its work. Rowcroft is determined to make sure every penny raised from people's donations continues to help patients and their loved ones make the most of every moment they have together.
