Proud sponsors of the green paint station at the 2014 & 2015 colour rush events, raising funds for local charity Rowcroft Hospice.
Pavey Group have for many years supported the fund raising efforts of Rowcroft Hospice. We are thrilled to be sponsoring the green paint station at this year’s Colour Rush 5k event at Paignton Beach on Saturday 13th September.
Rowcroft Hospice serves the people of South Devon by providing specialist care to patients with progressive, life limiting illnesses. Through dedicated fundraising events such as Colour Rush, they are able to develop services that support patients and families.
In addition to their in-patient unit in Torquay, over 60% of patients are cared for within the community by their own Rowcroft nurses, rather than at the hospice itself.
Whether staying at the hospice or being treated as an out-patient, individuals can benefit from services including physiotherapy, occupational therapy, and complementary therapy in addition to bereavement support, art, music and spiritual therapy.
Rowcroft is a charity, completely independent of the NHS which is why donations and sponsorships from local people and businesses are so important, ensuring that patients continue to receive such a high level of care.
“Pavey Group have always been strong supporters of Rowcroft Hospice and we are thrilled to be sponsoring The Colour Rush 2014”, comments Nick Sanders, Director at Pavey Group “Whether we run or walk the 5k route, we’ll be entering a team and volunteering on the green paint station”.
Update - September 2014
The team had a fantastic day at Paignton Beach for the Colour Rush Run. We'd like to say a big thank you to all those involved who have helped raise a grand total of £76,746 which will allow Rowcroft to continue to provide the best care for people across South Devon with life-limiting illnesses.
Update - April 2015
Pavey Group were delighted to be sponsoring the Green Paint Station for a second year. Our team of runners and paint throwers had a fantastic day on the beach!
