The Team At Baker Estates Are Proudly Supporting Rowcroft Hospice

In the beautiful setting of historic Borringdon Hall, Plympton the Baker Estates team came together to celebrate another year of success. The event was held as a thank you to everyone who have helped propel the business further still in 2017. Everyone had the chance to mingle with an opportunity to let their hair down and celebrate in true style.

Baker Estates would like to thank their business partners, support agents and subcontractors who generously donated some amazing prizes for the evening’s festive raffle – in aid of Rowcroft Hospice, Torquay. From champagne to hampers, Spa days to vouchers galore, it was no wonder that on the night an impressive £2,000 was raised for such a worthy cause.

As a growing business, delivering exceptional quality requires hard work, dedication and team work. So, fun was had by all on the night and here’s to a great 2018.

Rosey Oakes, Community Fundraising Manager, says, “We were absolutely delighted to receive such a large donation from Bakers Estates. Every year we look after over 2000 patients, providing comfort, support and specialist services in patients’ homes, the community and at Rowcroft’s Inpatient Unit in Torquay. This donation will enable families to share precious and joyful moments when they are needed most.

We’re thrilled to hear that the team have decided to support us again throughout 2018, and we look forward to hearing all about their next fundraising adventure!”

This is why Baker Estates are proud to support Rowcroft Hospice.
