Clinton Devon Estates go back in time for an 80’s inspired fundraising walk for Hospiscare
The annual Twilight Walk took place on Saturday the 8th July with the team of ten staff and family members dressing in neon colours and ballet tutus, embracing the eighties theme.
The walk started and finished at The Maer in Exmouth and the teams enjoyed seafront views and entertainment such as choirs keeping all the walkers motivated.
Carla Whitaker, Estate Office and Project Administration Manager, part of the fundraising group said: “We are all so pleased to have taken part and raised money for Hospiscare as the work they do makes such a difference to so many in our community.
“The whole event was brilliantly organised and everyone in the team who took part enjoyed themselves immensely. It was a great evening for all.”

The Twilight Walk team included Carla Whitaker, Clare James, Linda Stanley Kate Ponting, Rachel Manning, Anne Derbyshire, Amanda Brogan and Jayne Savage, as well as Jayne’s two daughters Rebecca and Eleanor Savage.
