All our events are shared on the Cruse Devon facebook page – Cruse Bereavement Care Devon and on Twitter @CruseDevon.
North Devon has a fantastic group of people who help plan, manage and run fundraising events throughout the area, and we are always looking for new Fundraising Volunteers (FVs) to join us. If you are interested, please email Laraine at firstname.lastname@example.org or call the area office on 0300 330 5466.
All our FVs have different skills, so some may be great at seeking out donations from local businesses, some may be able to organise a coffee morning, others may be able to donate time to attend an event for a couple of hours to help promote Cruse Devon by handing out leaflets. All these skills are valuable and have helped us with these fundraising events over the past year.

Footprints Memory Walk Sunday 9th June 2019 - Simmons Park, Okehampton
We are organising a memory walk which will take place at Simmons Park on 9th June. This will be the first walk organised by Devon, and is open to anyone who would like to join us. This is for bereaved people to join together to remember their loved ones and to help raise funds for Cruse Devon.
There will be charge of £5 to attend, and we will have two dedicated routes, one wheelchair and pushchair accessible, the other slightly more challenging walking up the hill through the woods. They will both meet up and you will be able to walk through the rose garden, and place a flower and note on the memory boards. You may choose to sit for a while in the garden, then follow the patch back to the start, to the bandstand. There will then be food available and live music to sit and listen to (included in the £5 entry fee). We hope to have stalls and other entertainment available.
If you have any ideas, or would like to help make this day a success or would like to sponsor the event, please email Laraine on email@example.com or call on 0300 330 5466.
We will set up a page for people to register their interest, and we will be providing more information on the event as we go. Please check back for more details.
