Budleigh Salterton & District Hospiscare (BS&DH) has been selected as the Charity of the Year for 2024 by Budleigh Salterton Cricket Club (BSCC).

BS&DH is an independent charity raising their own funds to cover all the costs of patients registered with Budleigh Salterton Medical Centre and Woodbury Surgery who are cared for by Hospiscare’s end of life services.

They also support those patients and their families through volunteer services.

Martin Briggs, Chairman of BS&DH, said: "We are absolutely delighted that Budleigh Salterton Cricket Club have made us their Charity of the Year for 2024."

"The partnership is a great example of two local organisations working together for the benefit of the local community – with BSCC helping to raise valuable funds for us during our 40th Anniversary year and us supporting the Otters in their great new location at The Holt."

Joel Murphy, chairman of BSCC, said, “BSCC are a community driven cricket club, and we are excited to be able to support and promote the incredible work that BS&DH do in the town and local area.

"We are two charitable organisations who are focused on the health and well-being of the community, as such we are looking forward to working on some great events together throughout the year! Watch this space.”
