Rowcroft Hospice launches brand new fundraising day – Sound Waves

08 May 2017

Saturday 10 June will see The Den in Teignmouth play host to Rowcroft Hospice’s family fundraising day, Sound Waves.

Live music will be played from the main stage between noon and 9pm, featuring local bands such as Harbour, Three Bags Full, The Kaizens, The Mogs and many more.

The event is free to attend and there will be food and drink stalls along with fun activities, glitter face painting and more.

Daniel Robson, Rowcroft Events Manager said: “We’re excited to be bringing another new event to Teignmouth and promise this is a day not to miss. So grab your picnic blanket, some good friends and your biggest smiles and join in the family fun and frolics!”

Sound Waves is supporting The Colour Rush Teignmouth to fund the vital services provided by Rowcroft Hospice.

Although free to attend the event is being supported by many local businesses who will be donating a percentage of their takings to the hospice.

In addition to this organisers have announced that there will be a big prize draw.

Daniel explained: “We have some fantastic prizes on offer which have been donated by local businesses including an overnight stay at The Orestone Manor, a sailing charter on The Vigilance, a three month Gold membership to Winners 2000 and a gin making workshop courtesy of Salcombe Gin.”

The Sound Waves fundraising event is taking place the day before The Colour Rush Teignmouth and is one of a series of efforts Rowcroft is making to continue raising vital income following its funding shortfall in 2016.

Head of Fundraising Rachael Bryett said: “The local community has shown us enormous support since we announced our funding shortfall in 2016.

“We now hope they will join us in celebrating the amazing efforts South Devon has gone to in support of its local hospice, by signing up for our most colourful event of the summer!”

There is still time to sign up now for The Colour Rush Teignmouth on Sunday 11 June, so if you fancy becoming a human rainbow, visit and sign up now!
