The Challenge Countdown


The Charity

We are doing this to help raise funds for Rowcroft Hospice

We’re committed. Committed to helping our patients and families make the most of every moment. From Dartmouth to Dawlish, our teams provide comfort, support and a range of specialist services to care for 2,200 patients with life limiting illnesses every year across South Devon. Our care is provided at home, in the community and at our Inpatient Unit in Torquay. We’re committed to supporting families and carers for as long as they need us.

More than 70% of our funding comes from the incredible generosity of local people and we use every single penny of it to help make every day the best day possible for our patients and their loved ones.

Do keep in touch and if there is anything I can do to help, just call or email.

This time last year a message was sent that lead to the most amazing and life defining adventure. It was an impulse by Azud and a vision by Justin that made this happen.

Within a year we had entered, bought a boat, completed training and rowed the Atlantic Ocean. To add to this we won the pairs race.

Within the space of a year a very meaningful and strong bond of friendship and trust was forged.

Thank you all for being a part of #FreshDentalChallenge_Atlantic
