Sword-waving knights descended recently on Hospiscare’s Kings House to take a look around.

The knights were from the cast of the Luppitt Players pantomime, Knight Fever!, which raised £1,000 for the end-of-life charity.

Sarah Smith, Hospiscare’s community manager, showed the group around the day hospice in Honiton.

Steve Berry, director of the Luppitt Players, said: “We enjoyed our tour of Kings House and it’s fair to say we all came away very impressed with the wonderful state-of- the-art facilities, so well chosen.

“We chose to support Hospiscare, and Kings House in particular, as we felt it is a very worthwhile cause and close to all our hearts in one way or another.

“I would like to extend our thanks to the staff and volunteers for being so kind and informative when we visited.”
